Swagger Core library
The goal of Swagger™ is to define a standard, language-agnostic interface to REST APIs which allows both humans and computers to discover and understand the capabilities of the service without access to source code, documentation, or through network traffic inspection. When properly defined via Swagger, a consumer can understand and interact with the remote service with a minimal amount of implementation logic. Similar to what interfaces have done for lower-level programming, Swagger removes the guesswork in calling the service.
Swagger-core is the Java implementation of Swagger. Current version supports JAX-RS. Future milestone releases will add support for plain Servlets and Play Framework.
Check out Swagger-Spec for additional information about the Swagger project, including additional libraries with support for SpringMVC, other languages and more.
See the Wiki!
The github wiki contains documentation, samples, etc. Start there.
The following methods are available to obtain support for Swagger:
- The Swagger Google Group - This would normally be your first stop to get support for Swagger. Here you can find previously asked question, and ask new ones. When asking a question, please provide as much information as you can regarding the environment you use (development language, library, versions.
- The Issues tab - Please open feature requests and bugs here. If you're not sure you encountered a bug, or if it's a general usage question, please use the Google Group mentioned above.
- IRC! you can find us on freenode in the channel #Swagger. You can talk with us directly there.
Get started with Swagger!
See the guide on getting started with swagger to get started with adding swagger to your API.
The Swagger Specification has undergone 3 revisions since initial creation in 2010. The swagger-core project has the following compatibilities with the swagger specification:
|Swagger core Version||Release Date||Swagger Spec compatibility||Notes||Status|
Where is Scala support?
To allow independent development, scala support has been moved into a separate project. See the swagger-scala-module for details. Play! framework support is moving outside the swagger-core project as well.
This is a project to build the swagger-core library, which is required for the Swagger implementation of the Swagger spec.
If you're interested in the change history of swagger and the swagger-core framework, see here.
You need the following installed and available in your $PATH:
- Java 6 (http://java.oracle.com)
- Apache maven 3.0.4 or greater (http://maven.apache.org/)
- Jackson 2.4.2 or greater
To build from source (currently 1.5.2-M2)
# first time building locally mvn -N
This will build the modules. To build sample apps, activate the
mvn install -Psamples
Of course if you don't want to build locally you can grab artifacts from maven central:
There are a number of sample apps in the samples folder.
