Please test change to HTTP binding

I’ve submitted a change that allows the 1.x HTTP binding to update items of any type, and I’m looking for further testing to confirm it works as advertised without any regressions.

Prior to this PR, the HTTP binding only updates items of the following types:

  • Number
  • Contact
  • Switch
  • Rollershutter
  • DateTime
  • String

With this PR, the HTTP binding will update items of any type (Dimmer, Location, etc.), providing the incoming or optionally transformed string can be converted into one of the item’s accepted data types.

A test JAR is here.

Thanks in advance for your testing feedback!

I’ve merged the change to the HTTP binding, so please test after the next build that is included in the OH2 distro. Thank you!
