I am exhausted. I have tried for a couple days now to get something working with REST service.

I am making a non-gui REST solution used to receive from whatever REST client people will use some json to create a ticket. I did not plan to run this in Tomcat or Weblogic. The issue is it receives the JSON and then shows the content on stdout, but it then throws if I just try and put String ticket in :

SEVERE: A message body reader for Java class java.lang.String, and Java type class java.lang.String, and MIME media type applicati
on/json was not found.
The registered message body readers compatible with the MIME media type are: // If I try and receive in POST ChangeTicket ticket instead of String ticket, it complains instead about no writer.
*/* ->

I have no clue on how to setup providers, message body readers, or message body writers. I am not sure about the right dependencies or order to put them in pom.xml.

It starts a HttpServer and listens on a port.
It has a class called ChangeTicket, which is basically public ChangeTicket() with a lot of set and gets for things to make a ticket. It does have an @override for toString() that returns the json used to make a ticket.

Then, there is a class called ChangeticketRESTResource with:

There is web.xml:

and a pom.xml for maven:

It lloks like the problem is that in line 28 you state that MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON type entity will be produced/returned, but in line 41 you are actually returning a String.
I'm not dead! I feel happy! I'd like to go for a walk! I'll even read a tiny ad:
