More flexible servicesPath for ServiceProvider

                 Key: ABDERA-86
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ABDERA-86
             Project: Abdera
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 0.4.0
            Reporter: Jim Ancona

I have a use case where the base URI of my service is parameterized (e.g. http://example.com/users/{userId}/service/).
I want to use a ServiceProvider at the user level, i.e. I would like the servicesPath to match
http://example.com/users/{userId}/. The current implementation in AbstractServiceProvider
uses a plain string match, so there's no way to parameterize it.

I have created a class extending AbstractServiceProvider which matches using a regex. It also
stores the match value(s) as request parameter(s), making them easily accessible to my CollectionProvider.
While my class meets my needs, I think the use case is common enough that you might want to
incorporate something similar into Abdera. I had to override AbstractServiceProvider.resolve()
in my class, which lead to quite a bit of duplicated code. It might be better to:

1. Refactor AbstractServiceProvider to abstract the string matching into separate methods,
so that classes that want to use a different matching method can easily do so.

2. Make the default implementation use a regex rather than a simple string match.
