Re: Getting Started with Swagger

To simply put, Integrating swagger with any tool is a nightmare. Docuemnts are great example of how not to write a document. I believe that most of the people would end up writing YAML file manually. 


For example, read this document "How to use swagger without maven ? ". This is a partial document. I have downloaded dependencies then what should I do with them??

Re: Getting Started with Swagger

Not sure which tools you tried and landed into issues. Specifics would help both readers / community members and SmartBear team to address the issues.


Had experienced issues with OpenAPI (Swagger definition  3.0) i.e., A swagger definition with version 3.0 is not even supported by SmartBear's SoapUI Open Source editon 5.4.0 which is a bit strange.  However, SoapUI works well with Swagger defintion 2.0.
