Web service end point setup in tomcat

Hi guys,

I am trying to test web service and      
here are the port numbers I am currently using:
4438, 8070   Apache
3306              MySQL
9090              Tomcat

I installed Tomcat6.0 and inside webaaps, I put "Retail_App_Rest" folder.
1.JPGWhen I entered http://localhost:9090/ on a web browser, it brought up Apache Tomcat page.
However, when I entered  "http://localhost:9090/Retail_App_Rest/retail" on a web browser, I got the following error.
end point is http://localhost:9090/Retail_App_Rest/retail
The resource I am trying to test is "http://localhost:9090/Retail_App_Rest/retail/admin/login                  - POST"
I just changed the port number to 9090 since 8080 in my computer is in use.
My OS is Windows 10.

can anybody tell me what to do resolve this issue? I want to make sure that my endpoint it working correctly.

The first error is showing that http://localhost:9090/Retail_App_Rest/retail is NOT actually an endpoint (hence the "Not Found" message)

The second error is showing that http://localhost:9090/Retail_App_Rest/retail/admin/login IS an endpoint but it does not support the GET method which is what the browser would be using if you type that address into the address bar. From the naming and what you wrote above, my guess is that it only supports the POST method. So to test it you would need to use a client that you can specify the method to use. From the screenshot, can I guess that you are using Google Chrome? If so, one option could be to install a Chrome extension such as this.... https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/advanced-rest-client/hgmloofddffdnphfgcellkdfbfbjeloo/   that can help with testing REST services.
