Swagger2Feature

 

The CXF Swagger2Feature allows you to generate Swagger 2.0 documents from JAX-RS service endpoints with a simple configuration.

For generating Swagger 1.2 documents, you can use SwaggerFeature instead of Swagger2Feature.

These features can be configured programatically in Java or using Spring or Blueprint beans.

Properties

The following optional parameters can be configured in Swagger2Feature

Note some properties listed below are not available or used differently in SwaggerFeature, as the corresponding properties are used differently in Swagger 2.0 and Swagger 1.2. Please refer to the corresponding Swagger documentation.)

Configuring Programatically

 

import org.apache.cxf.frontend.ServerFactoryBean;
import org.apache.cxf.jaxrs.swagger.Swagger2Feature;
...

    Swagger2Feature feature = new Swagger2Feature();

    // customize some of the properties
    feature.setBasePath("/api");
    	
   	// add this feature to the endpoint (e.g., to ServerFactoryBean's features) 
   	ServerFactoryBean sfb = new ServerFactoryBean();
   	sfb.getFeatures().add(feature);
