I am trying to follow the example to create a new REST service in Geoserver:

After building, accessing the service at http://localhost:8080/geoserver/rest/hello.txt doesn't do anything.

(REST is working since http://localhost:8080/geoserver/rest will show me the Geoserver Configuration API)

I have also tried within eclipse. To me it seems that I need to add some configuration somewhere to get the rest services to know about my new "hello world" rest service and add it to the geoserver rest services?

Can someone explain how to get this example to work?
