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, Swager removes the guesswork in calling the service.
Swagger-core is the Java/Scala implementation of Swagger. It supports JAX-RS, 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.
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.
See the guide on getting started with swagger to get started with adding swagger to your API.
This is a project to build the swagger-core library, which is required for the Wordnik implementation of the Swagger spec. For more information about Wordnik's APIs, please visit http://developer.wordnik.com.
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 1.6 or greater (http://java.oracle.com) - Apache maven 3.0.4 or greater (http://maven.apache.org/)
# first time building locally mvn -N
This will build the modules and sample apps.
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
java-jaxrs Java-based swagger server with JAX-RS
scala-jaxrs Scala-based swagger server with JAX-RS
scala-jaxrs-apm Scala-based swagger server using wordnik-oss utils for Application Performance Monitoring (APM)
To run a sample app after initial compile:
# run scala-jaxrs sample app cd samples/scala-jaxrs mvn jetty:run
And the Play2 samples:
java-play2 Java-based Play2 sample app
scala-play2 Scala-based Play2 sample app
To run the Play2 sample apps:
cd samples/java-play2 play run
