Java – Testing REST webservices


My organization is working on building RESTful webservices on JBoss appserver. The QA team is used to testing SOAP webservices so far using SoapUI. SoapUI has a new version that has REST capabilities. We're considering using that.

  1. Are there any publicly available RESTful services available on the net for free that someone could test ?
  2. What tools are available(and used) for testing RESTful web services ?

soapUI will do the job as well, check out this blog post to get started.
