Can Junit be used for integration testing?

I have an api that needs to be tested.
I have a test client java program that simulates the input values and runs the integration test cases.
Can Junit be used in this case?
Or it's used for unit testing i.e. testing the individual java class?

Yes, it can.

You can do both, Unit Testing and Integration Testing using JUnit.

Usually the tests seem similar, however in Unit Testing you will use Mock Objects, as long as Integration Testing you will use the object itself.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
