revolute joint defined in URDF is not moving

Hi, I am on Ubuntu 16.04 using ROS Kinetic. I created a package in my catkin workspace to visualize and play with two links using the joint_state_publisher sliders. I added roscpp, rospy, joint_state_publisher, and robot_state_publisher as dependencies. I sourced the setup.bash in my catkin workspace accordingly. I have a revolute joint defined in my urdf for two links. It loads well in rviz. However, I get a warning

[WARN] [1540905885.947795]: joint1 is not fixed, nor continuous, but limits are not specified!
[ERROR] [1540905885.987862600]: Robot semantic description not found. Did you forget to define or remap '/robot_description_semantic'?

The slider knob for the joint_state_publisher GUI bar is also not loaded. I hope someone could see if I miss a step or add unnecessary dependencies to my package.

My URDF is as follows. I also tried using continuous joint and commented the limit out. The slider loads but playing with the value would not move link1:

revolute joint defined in URDF is not moving

I added roscpp, rospy, joint_state_publisher, and robot_state_publisher as dependencies. I sourced the setup.bash in my catkin workspace accordingly. I have a revolute joint defined in my urdf for two links. It loads well in rviz. However, I get a warning

[WARN] [1540905885.947795]: joint1 is not fixed, nor continuous, but limits are not specified!
[ERROR] [1540905885.987862600]: Robot semantic description not found. Did you forget to define or remap '/robot_description_semantic'?

The slider knob for the joint_state_publisher GUI bar is also not loaded. I hope someone could see if I miss a step or add unnecessary dependencies to my package.

My URDF is as follows. I also tried using continuous joint and commented the limit out. The slider loads but playing with the value would not move link1:
