Restlets not responding even though request shows in console

Restlet Code

public static void main(String[] args) {

Component component = new Component();
component.getServers().add(Protocol.HTTP, 8182);

Context ctx = component.getContext();
final Context childCtx = ctx.createChildContext();
Application application = new Application(childCtx) {
public Restlet createRoot() {
// Create a root router
Router router = new Router(childCtx);

public void handle(Request request, Response response) {
// Print the user name of the requested orders
String message = "Orders of user \""
+ request.getAttributes().get("users") + "\"";
response.setEntity(message, MediaType.TEXT_PLAIN);

router.attach("/users/{user}", account);
router.attach("/object/", TestServerResource.class);

return router;



When I use the GUI test tool and submit a GET request the console logs the fact that a request was received but no data is returned. A breakpoint in the handle() method is never hit. The TestServerResource class is never accessed either. I copied this example from the Restlet user guide. I feel like I have entered everything correctly but things just aren't working. Is there an important step that I have missed?

Here's some more information

I am using RESTClient 3.0

I issue the following GET request through RESTClient 3.0

The java console shows

Oct 03, 2012 8:40:02 AM com.noelios.restlet.LogFilter afterHandle
INFO: 2012-10-03     08:40:02     -     -     8182     GET     /users/1     -     200     0     -     16     Apache-HttpClient/4.2.1 (java 1.5)     

The RESTClient output shows

Oct 03, 2012 8:40:03 AM org.wiztools.restclient.HTTPClientRequestExecuter execut

The RESTClient 3.0 GUI reports
