      Description

      The REST Client step currently allows for setting the Accept HTTP header (via the "Application Type" dropdown), but only for non-GET method requests. We should add this capability for GET requests, so that users can choose whether to request TEXT, XML, JSON, or other datatypes from the remote webserver.

      Currently, users must manually set an "Accept" header in another tab, but this can cause confusion, as the dropdown box is still available for users to change, though it makes no difference in the actual outcome of the step.
