Am using Jersey 1.15, JDK 1.6, Tomcat 7, Maven 2.2.1 to create a simple Restful Web Service that should return a JSON String from a POJO that I mapped.

Here's my POJO:

my webservice:

Here's my pom.xml:

My web.xml:

After deploying to tomcat, when I try to invoke the web service like this:

I get the following error:

After scouring the Internet, I tried inserting the following proposed solution that everyone suggested into web.xml:
