how to make REST API calls from a JIRA plugin?


I am new to JIRA plugin development. I am developing a plugin in which on clicking a web-item, it has to make a rest api call. How do I achieve this? 

I know a little about webwork action. Is that the way to go? Should the api call be made inside a webwork action?

Please refer to any relevant tutorial. I couldn't find any so far in last 2 days.

You can import apache httpClient in your pom.xml
