For Testing OAuth2.0
Any plug-ins or any Tools are available to test the OAuth2.0 with REST Services.I got the mozilla plugin but its not supported for all grant types.
Please if you used any tool please share with me.
This is the mozilla plugin : chrome://restclient/content/restclient.html

I don't think the mozilla plugin is much good for getting an access token from Spring OAuth2 providers (or any that match the latest specs) because it doesn't seem to send the credentials to the token endpoint in a header. Maybe you got it to work?
Anyway other grant types can be tested with curl pretty easily.

There is also a quick way to test the access token by using Bearer token authentication to access the protected resources.
If you are interested you can try it out by downloading it from here
(Examine actually comes with much more WS testing functionality and includes other helpful tools as well - the entire feature list is described here)
This blog article describes how to use this tool with SF and Twitter... hope it helps
