It's kind of surprising to me that JIRA does not have a "REST API." Looking on the bright side, this may be an opportunity for Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) to show its value, so back in March I made a little pitch in the appropriate JIRA issue:

You should consider making the JIRA REST API conformant with the Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) interface for Change Management (OSLC-CM). This would allow JIRA to integrate with ALM tools from IBM, Oracle, Rally, SourceGear, etc. The Mylyn folks are already involved. Here's the link to the OSLC-CM home page: http://open-services.net/bin/view/Main/CmHome. OSLC-CM v1 is the current spec and work on v2 is underway. It's an open effort and we'd love JIRA and/or JIRA users to join in and help us define v2.
