Expander development changes

Expanders 6.6.0 mainly focuses on improvements for Expander development.

Uses statements in mapping file can now have a type attribute. The way the type is resolved in specific to the import strategy.

For java import, you can now add static imports by adding type="static".

  <uses type="static" eval="'net.democritus.sys.NullDataRef.EMPTY_DATA_REF'"/>

@import parameters

The @imports statement in Expander templates can now have one or more parameters. These parameters in case you have multiple types of imports in the same artifact (e.g. in Angular).
