Tomcat 7: Testing REST interfaces with Jersey

You can test REST services with Jersey's client library easily enough.

 public class RestTest {
  public void addAnotherThing() {
    // Arrange
    ClientConfig config = new DefaultClientConfig();
    Client client = Client.create(config);
    WebResource service = client.resource(getBaseURI());
    // Act
    String result = service.path("rest").path("r").accept(MediaType.TEXT_PLAIN).get(String.class);
    // Assert
    assertEquals("Get should be 'rest'", "rest", result);
   private static URI getBaseURI() {
     return UriBuilder.fromUri("http://localhost:8080/hiya/rest/").build();

In this you use the Jersey ClientConfig, Client and WebResource to eventually make a url request that accepts plain text and get a string from that, finally asserting that to be a specific value.
