A Dropwizard bundle that serves Swagger UI static content and loads Swagger endpoints. Swagger UI static content is taken from https://github.com/swagger-api/swagger-ui

Note: if you come from previous versions there have been some changes in the way the bundle is configured, see details below.

How to use it

  • Add the Maven dependency (available in Maven Central)
  • Add the following to your Configuration class:
public class YourConfiguration extends Configuration {

    public SwaggerBundleConfiguration swaggerBundleConfiguration;
  • Add the following your configuration yaml (this is the minimal configuration you need):
prop1: value1
prop2: value2

# the only required property is resourcePackage, for more config options see below
  resourcePackage: <a comma separated string of the packages that contain your @Api annotated resources>
  • In your Application class:
public void initialize(Bootstrap<YourConfiguration> bootstrap) {
    bootstrap.addBundle(new SwaggerBundle<YourConfiguration>() {
        protected SwaggerBundleConfiguration getSwaggerBundleConfiguration(YourConfiguration configuration) {
            return configuration.swaggerBundleConfiguration;
  • As usual, add Swagger annotations to your resource classes and methods

  • Open a browser and hit http://localhost:<your_port>/swagger

Additional Swagger configuration

To see all the properties that can be used to customize Swagger see SwaggerBundleConfiguration.java

A note on Swagger 2

Host and port do not seem to be needed for Swagger 2 to work properly as it uses relative URLs. At the moment I haven't run through all the scenarios so some adjustments might be needed, please open a bug if you encounter any problems.
