Hi,

My web.xml is




When I type

Your URL mapping defines "/rest/*" but you are attempting to access "/test/hello".

Thanks for your response.

Even
http://localhost:8080/ServletContainer1/rest/hello

gives the same error message

Is the name of your web app really "ServletContainer1"? That doesn't sound like a name one would normally use.

If you renamed "com.vogella.jersey.first" to "test", then the URL would be http://localhost:8080/test/rest/hello

No luck , can you please guide me to some website that helps me with step by step instructions that get my first program working? I have gone thru a few websites (like vogella), but I am unable to find something that explains the link/connection between my servlet, XML file and the client/server (with tomcat/eclipse). Currently I am still reading "web services up and running" but wanted to make my hands dirty to understand the book better.

I see you are using Jersey, you can explore the documentation on their website, there are many examples.
This page describes how to create a new REST API using a maven archetype, it should take no more than 5 minutes, you can then analyze the code while reading the docs: https://jersey.java.net/documentation/latest/getting-started.html

If later on you want to integrate Jersey with Spring and some data access, you can take a look at this boilerplate project https://github.com/gastongr/rest-boilerplate. You can get that running locally in 5 minutes too.

Also if you like video lessons, take a look at this great free course https://javabrains.io/courses/javaee_jaxrs
