How test my Jira plugin REST interfaces from Jira integration test?

Is there any way to do this? I think the easiest way is to access REST interface like a component, but I can't know how to do this. Or only the old fashion way available, for example call the rest with apache http client? I am using jira 7.0.

Thanks.

I've relied on the simple brute-force way, making REST calls from test scripts with curl (similar to the apache client you sugget) - I had too many problems with internal tests on components returning a pass when it had really failed.

Thanks for your answer.

Not a bad idea. But I solved it yesterday. I create a new instance from my REST class, and set the dependencies through constructor. After that I can call directly my rest method from an integration or wired integration test. Works good.
