Add a new property type called "REST Property" which gets its selectable value from a REST Service

When running a process often you want to select a specific DA Application, Component or Status. Currently you have to manually enter the text data for the value making it error prone. A better approach would be to create a new property type which gets it values from a REST service. In this case the REST service could point to the DA REST API for the Application, Components or Status list. For more flexibility the API could be constructed based on other fields, e.g. "http://localhost:8080/da/rest/deploy/application/${application.id}/componentsPaged" to return a selectable list of components for a specific application.

If Basic Authentication was added then you could also query external REST services for an input value as well.
