> The idea here is that we can receipt an HTTP request and use NiFi, in essence to build
a web server graphically. This opens up a wide range of possibilities, by allowing a DFM to
easily add a web front-end to any service that NiFi can interact with or to perform any sort
of action that NiFi has the ability to perform, such as data format conversion, etc.
> For example, if you want to provide a web-based front-end to an SFTP Server, you could
do so by creating a flow like:
> ReceiveHTTPRequest -> PutSFTP -> RespondHTTPRequest
