The mechanism used to control the serialization format used for a request sent from a client to a data service is the Content-Type HTTP header. The default mechanism controlling the format used in a response from a data service is the Accept HTTP header. The Accept header is used to indicate that the response to the request is limited to a specific set of MIME types. The MIME type returned from parsing the accept header is then used as the response format.
