I am currently trying to create a simple Spring Boot application that I can send a request from my Postman application to a rest endpoint and the application will perform a basic operation on the data handed over and return the result in a Response.

Here is my main class:
I hava an index.html containing a simple title and paragraphwhich shos when I run the app on server. I orginally had a web.xml but I found that my IDE, STS, doesn't need it and it actually got in the way so I deleted it.

Here is my current pom.xml:
I have posted this to StackOverflow as well. One user has given me a configuration they say works for them but it does not work for me.
