I have defined a rest request Handler like this

@RequestMapping(value="/{userId}", method = RequestMethod.GET, produces = MediaType.APPLICATION_XML)
public @ResponseBody
Domain getUserProfile(@PathVariable String userId) throws XmlException{

It works like /api/users/ but not /api/users/, not able to figure out what exactly is the reason.

HttpMediaTypeNotAcceptableException: 406 Not Acceptable

is not the same as:

NoSuchRequestHandlingMethodException 404 Not Found
HttpRequestMethodNotSupportedException 405 Method not Allowed
HttpMediaTypeNotSupportedException 415 Unsupported Media Type

Have a check again, use TCP/IP mon to see what client send up to the server:
