> It seems that it expects ClientRequestContext.getAcceptableMediaTypes() to return "*/*" by default if there is no Accept header. Not sure I agree with this. The Javadoc says it returns the *requested* media types, i.e., what you specified in an Accept header. If there is no accept header,

" A request without any Accept header field implies that the user agent
   will accept any media type in response." .... aka */*
