open pdf returned by rest web service  using -'java,json,rest,pdf,jaxb'

I have a JAXB REST Web Service getting in request a POST of a JSON and should return a PDF document in response:

@POST
@Path("getReceipt")
@Consumes({ MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON })
@Produces({ "application/pdf" })
public Response getReceipt(InputStream incomingData, @Context HttpServletRequest httpRequest) {
...
}


I'm trying to test it with Advanced Rest Client (Google's plugin), which is showing the following as response:

This text version of binary file is different (more question marked characters in place of other ones) from the one I can see opening the binary file from file system with a text editor.

My question is: how could I test this service posting the JSON request and being able to open PDF document in the response? Should I use another tool, or build a form?
