I did not do that! So that explains why the getClasses() and
getSingletons() methods are not being called.

Now here is my problem. I am using the following method
to create my HttpServer. I need to specify an HttpHandler. So how do I
pass it a ResourceConfig instance? I think there is a way to create an
HttpHandler with a specified ResourceConfig but I do not know how to do
that. Any advice?

Thanks again for your kind help.
