[Jersey] Re: Unit Test Resources individually?

it is not possible, jersey test framework always needs to start jersey
and if you define just this class as only resource, it won't start
because there is no root resource present.

What you can do is create something like ResTestResource, which could
look like:

public class ResTestResource extends Res {
     public ResTestResource() {
         super("injected value");

and run your test(s) against it..
