I have got Geoserver installed with map data in postgis.

When I use arcgis server to publish mapService and featureService, I can get a list of layers published under the url like following.

https://"ARCGIS-SERVER".com/arcgis/rest/services/"servcie folder"/"servcie folder"_gis_fs/FeatureServer

Further, I can access individual layers within the service and can see the list of attribute fields and data type information within the data.

Is it possible to get a similar information from geoserver? if yes, How?

obviously

http://geoserver.com/geoserver/NameSpace/ows?service=WFS&version=1.0.0&request=GetFeature&typeName=NameSpace:LayerName&maxFeatures=50&outputFormat=application/json

you get a geojson quite similar to arcgis rest services through the wfs service

here is a live example http://144.76.39.165:8082/geoserver/ELPHO/ows?service=WFS&version=1.0.0&request=GetFeature&typeName=ELPHO:PARCELS_INIT&maxFeatures=50&outputFormat=application/json
