    sudo update-rc.d tomcat7 disable
  14. download the zip of Jersey;
  15. put the the jersey jars into the folder “WEB-INF/lib” and add them to the project build path;
  16. create your first RESTful Webservice by following this tutorial by Lars Vogel.

Your web services will be automatically deployed in the following folder:


Your web service will be accessible through the following URI:



  1. x = the root of your service set inside the tag url-pattern in web.xml;
  2. y = the path set for your class
  3. z = the path set for your method
