Automation Testing for REST API - Where to start?

Last Modified: 2016-02-01
Hi experts,

We are developing a REST based product using the following technologies

MySQL as database
HTML5, CSS 3, jQuery, JavaScript, Bootstrap as the front-end
Jersey framework
Tomcat as the application server
JSON as the producer/consumer

The team is having a good knowledge in Java, JavaScript and jQuery. In order to test REST API as well as the front-end, which is the best framework in the market (preferably the free ones and also easy to learn as we need to complete the test automation in a month - 4 weeks)

Any good books on the subject?

Where to start?, please advice.

Thanks in advance
