Can I edit a comment of an issue using Java JIRA Rest client provided by Atlassian ?

Can I edit a comment of an issue using Java JIRA Rest client provided by Atlassian ? I dond't find any API that supports editing of comment. 

There is REST url to edit the comment as per the link below. https://developer.atlassian.com/jiradev/jira-apis/jira-rest-apis/jira-rest-api-tutorials/updating-an-issue-via-the-jira-rest-apis

I am trying this using Advanced REST client in chrome but getting 405 Method Not Allowed

Link : - http://<some JIRA instance>/rest/api/2/issue/ASM-141/editmeta

Method: PUT

Headers : Authorization : Basic <some encryption>

Content Type : application/json

Body: { "update": { "comments": ["edit": {"id": 177226, "body": "newbody"} ] } }

Can you not use:

 

PUT /rest/api/2/issue/{issue}/comment/{id}

 

{
"body": "yay, it's not Monday."
}

 

editmeta is not the right call and only allows for GET and according to the REST API browser:

"Returns the meta data for editing an issue.

The fields in the editmeta correspond to the fields in the edit screen for the issue. Fields not in the screen will not be in the editemeta."
