A provider that supports the conversion of an HTTP header, of type T, to and from a String.

An implementation (a service-provider) identifies itself by placing a provider-configuration file (if not already present), "org.glassfish.jersey.header.spi.HeaderDelegateProvider" in the resource directory META-INF/services, and including the fully qualified service-provider-class of the implementation in the file.
