    1. Verify Dependencies: Make sure you've added the required Swagger dependencies (swagger-core and swagger-jaxrs) correctly in your classpath.

    2. Update web.xml: Open your web.xml file and add the following servlet and servlet-mapping entries:

      <servlet> <servlet-name>Swagger</servlet-name> <servlet-class>com.wordnik.swagger.jersey.config.JerseyJaxrsConfig</servlet-class> <load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup> </servlet> <servlet-mapping> <servlet-name>Swagger</servlet-name> <url-pattern>/api/*</url-pattern> <!-- You can choose any URL pattern you prefer --> </servlet-mapping>
    3. Verify URL: With the above configuration, try accessing Swagger UI at http://localhost:8080/your-app-context-root/api/docs.

      Replace your-app-context-root with the actual context root of your web application.

      If your application is running on a different port or domain, adjust the URL accordingly.

    4. Check Context Path: Ensure your web application is deployed properly and the context path is correct.

    5. Check Console Logs: Check your application server's console logs for any error messages related to Swagger initialization.

    6. Verify Swagger JARs: Confirm that swagger-core and swagger-jaxrs JARs are placed in the WEB-INF/lib folder of your web application.

    7. Check for Conflicting Dependencies: Ensure there are no conflicting dependencies that might interfere with Swagger.

    8. Restart Server: Sometimes, a simple server restart can resolve such issues  If you're looking to create a tutorial or content that combines about it use

    Your question is off topic as it's not about using SoapUI itself.


    It sounds like you might have already been reading some information about swagger-jaxrs, but it doesn't sound like you've completed all the steps, such as defining the servlets in web.xml ( (I won't comment further on this)
