This is something you'll need to setup yourself. The NET.HTTP object provides functionality for making raw HTTP Requests.  It's a matter of setting the request parameters to match the Rest API.

You can also use the FormCalc functions to call a web service and I've an example with this sample Adobe LiveCycle Designer Cookbooks by BR001: Calling a RESTful web service from a PDF form.  Which also shows how to call FormCalc functions from JavaScript.

You get some do you trust this... sort of security messages, but you can select remember decision.
