CXF Swagger2Feature return the same swagger.json

am trying to generate swaggger documentation for our APIs.

what i did is creating a bean based on the org.apache.cxf.jaxrs.swagger.Swagger2Feature:


<bean id="MySwagger2Feature" class="org.apache.cxf.jaxrs.swagger.Swagger2Feature" abstract="true">
            <property name="scanAllResources" value="true"/>
            <property name="title" value="Swagger API for Restful Services"/>
            <property name="description" value="Swagger API for Restful Services"/>
            <property name="version" value="1.0.0"/><!--TODO:: version -->
            <property name="prettyPrint" value="true"/>

and then for each Service(Endpoint) i created a separate bean that extends the parent bean. exp


<bean id="dashboardSwagger" parent="MySwagger2Feature">
            <property name="basePath" value="/services/rest/dashboard"/>
</bean> <bean id="usersSwagger" parent="MySwagger2Feature"> <property name="basePath" value="/services/rest/users"/>


and then add them to the <property name="features">, but the problem is that all the services return the same swagger.json and that is the one that comes first in the Alphabet order.

so i searched the internet and some developers said that i should add


<property name="usePathBasedConfig" value="true" />

to each child bean. and when i did that all the services now just return this swagger.json file.


    "swagger": "2.0"

 Any Suggestions please.
