I’m currently looking for ways to create automated tests for a JAX-RS (Java API for RESTful Web Services) based web service.
I basically need a way to send it certain inputs and verify that I get the expected responses. I’d prefer to do this via JUnit, but I’m not sure how that can be achieved.
What approach do you use to test your web-services?
Update: As entzik pointed out, decoupling the web service from the business logic allows me to unit test the business logic. However, I also want to test for the correct HTTP status codes etc.
