Manage documentation that is valid across the whole API, for example:

  • in this app, GET means retrieving a list of resources or a single resource
  • in this app, every request should have header "x" with value "y"
  • ...

It seems like you can already do some of this with in the API description (albeit in a free-form manner).

However, I would really like to see a version of the ApiHeaders and ApiErrors annotations that could be applied at either the controller class level or even a higher level class associated with an entire API group. Having to repeat all common headers and errors explicitly for every method is a chore, error prone, and really bloats the controller code.

Although it wouldn't allow truly global headers and errors, it would be pretty simple to allow the ApiHeaders and ApiErrors annotations at the class level so that you can define a set of default headers or errors that get added to any method-specific ones that are defined. I think it would just involve changing the annotations to allow ElementType.TYPE and updating the and methods to merge the the class and method level annotations.
