Dynamic rolling periods for Rules within Jobs

Dynamic rolling periods for rules replicates the funcionality of rolling periods for integrations. Dynmic periods with rules does require speacial syntax in order to enable the rolling period capability.

To support this new rolling periods feature, a new rule parameter type has been introduced. This new type will enable rolling periods on the jobs screen. The new type is:

type="RollingPeriodBegin"

An example of this syntax added to a new rule is as follows:

<param table="d_Time" label="PeriodStart" variableName="PeriodStart" lookupFieldName="FYPeriod" type="RollingPeriodBegin" />
		<param table="d_Time" label="PeriodEnd" variableName="PeriodEnd" lookupFieldName="FYPeriod" type="RollingPeriodEnd" />
