Java The ResourceConfig instance does not contain any root resource classes

I’m using jersey to build a webservice but every time i start the server (tomcar v9.0) i get the following error:

SEVERE: The ResourceConfig instance does not contain any root resource
classes.

I saw some answers in another post but nothing works for me

Things i already check from other stack overflow questions:

  • com.sun.jersey.config.property.packages on web.xml – it is on the file
  • Param on jersey is not correct – it is correct the MessageService┬┤s package is api
  • @Path on the class – on top of the class
  • Clean/Rebuild project – done
  • wrong folder location – it is inside src folder

Here is my code:
