which topic should I pub to move robot in rviz and Gazebo?

Hi all. I'm trying to write some rviz plugin attached to a 6 dof robot which are designed to control the 6 individual axis seperately. So I need to know which topic do the Rviz and Gazebo listen to. I run rostopic list to find all the topic and here are the output:

I tried to publish some topic but I found it was hard to publish data mannually in some topic like /jakaUr/jaka_joint_controller/follow_joint_trajectory/goal. Could someone tell me how to find the correct topic that I can publish to control robot in Rviz and Gazebo move that I can wirte mannual control Rviz plugin? Thanks!
