Whether to use Jersey jars or Jira rest java client

We are trying to integrate JIRA v 6.0.5 with our application . Should i go for the JIRA Rest Java Client (JRJC) related api / jar   or can i use the Jersey archive jars for my application . Right now i am using Jersey client jars to connect to JIRA and perform operations with JIRA . Which one should i use or which is better to use for our application ??

JRJC is ofcourse easier to use. But it is just a wrapper. If the jersey jars work for you, I don't see a reason why you should change.

I have gone through that JIRA Rest API documentation https://developer.atlassian.com/static/rest/jira/6.0.5.html#idp1230272 , i am not finding any URL which validates the user , i mean the user is a valid user or not . Is there any ??

Thanks for your response :)

Use https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/#d2e133. If the user is not valid, you will get an error.
