We're actually using those throughout our demos and tutorials right  
now, but I didn't see anything that would fit.

Probably not - this is strictly for visualizing a JSON tree. Though  
they might be able to cooperate - you could possibly copy the text of  
the response from your app and paste it into this one.

Todd has written something similar - it's the only other app in the  
tools project at the moment. However, it is more of a generic HTTP  
client. I could certainly see an argument for writing a different app  
that is more focused on REST APIs (and could possibly take advantage  
of the org.apache.pivot.web query classes).

Unfortunately, both apps are likely to need a complete TextArea  
component, which we don't currently have.  :-(
