How to use a REST API using Talend

I'm trying to use Talend to connect to a plain REST API and can't find an easy way to do it.
My aim is just to send an HTTP Post with some parameters to an URL.
Any advice for the right component to use ?
Thanks in advance

I'm in the same boat here. It doesn't look like talend support these capabilities yet. Let me know if I'm wrong. Thanks.

Hello,
U want to call a job deployed as webservice with a POST/GET HTTP call, sure U can :
http://www.talendforge.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=7423
A REST architecture means exposing ressources for CRUD operations which an ETL job hardly defines.
At best it could be only seen a small subset of all possibles ETL opérations.
Does some other ETL product do this kind of stuffs?

I've used tFileFetch to call REST web services from a Talend job and it works very well. It supports authentication, and you can pass query parameters in on the URI (assuming you are doing a GET) or POST parameters if you are calling the service to make an update. Assuming the REST response is XML, this can also be processed very easily in Talend using the XML components.
