 Q1. Is it necessary to specify "employeeId" with @PathParam("employeeId") in this case,

public String employeeInfo(@PathParam("employeeId") Long employeeId){
Ans. No, it's optional as the name of path param required is same as method param name in this case.

Even the declaration as following should work -

public String employeeInfo(@PathParam Long employeeId){
