Response Inspector creates a custom Response Inspector tab, which is used to view or edit aspects of a request. It is displayed as a tab in the response editor.

Generally, this extension is combined with custom RequestFilter or RequestTransport to define specific aspects of a response.

The inspectorId property defines the name of the inspector.

The annotated class must implement the EditorInspector interface.
