Invoke REST api call from a task

I am trying to write a bamboo task that on execution must invoke a POST on an inhouse REST API that will triggers a job.

I have just finished setting up a dev environment and executing the "write a task with UI" successfully.

Please suggest how can I invoke a third party rest API from within a task?

I come from a spring dev background, can I use something like a RestTemplate inside the task?

Thanks, Mukul

The Bamboo Java API provides a wrapper for the Apache HTTP Client in com.atlassian.bamboo.rest.utils. If you do need to use a library that you know better, just make sure to add the dependency to the plugin's pom.xml.
