Some foundation facts: Development environment using NetBeans 8.0.2, Tomcat 8.0.32, Java jdk1.8.0_121 and Postman. The code: I have a simple hello world servlet for testing (in production, the service will serve as an endpoint for information from another organization): package com.tsr.webservices; import javax.jws.WebService; import javax.jws.WebMethod; import javax.jws.WebParam; import javax.ws.rs.Consumes; import javax.ws.rs.GET; import javax.ws.rs.POST; import javax.ws.rs.Path; import javax.ws.rs.PathParam; import javax.ws.rs.Produces; import javax.ws.rs.core.MediaType; import org.json.JSONObject; /** * * @author Carl */ @WebService(serviceName = "helloWorld") @Path("/helloWorld") public class AnoviaWebService { /** * Retrieves representation of an instance of helloWorld.HelloWorld * @return an instance of java.lang.String */ @GET @Produces("text/html") public String getHtml() { return "

Hello, World!!

"; } } The web.xml contains these fragments: ... AnoviaWebService org.glassfish.jersey.servlet.ServletContainer jersey.config.server.provider.packages com.tsr.webservice 1 ... AnoviaWebService /helloWorld/* ... Tomcat starts properly with no errors. Using Postman with either http://192.168.0.117:8080/prod2test/helloWorld/getHtml or http://192.168.0.117:8080/prod2test/helloWorld the first request after a rebuild/redeploy (we use a request filter and I can see the request hitting the filter) returns a 200 OK but the jsp that is displayed is the jsp that is displayed when the request failed to pass the filter requirements. Subsequent requests return a 404, not found error and I can see the request never hits the filter after that first request. Additional notes. 1. I am attempting to add this service to an existing application that is quite large because, at some time in the not too distant future, the entire application will be changed to run as a sevice so the client and server sides can be decoupled. 2. I have successfully created/deployed/run a REST service using the NetBeans templates but it has no web.xml and uses the 'ApplicationConfig' process to expose the service. If anyone has any ideas, I would certainly appreciate them.
