While thinking about a title of this post I thought the current title line, with the " Keeps Getting Better" finishing touch may work well; I knew I used a similar line before, and after looking through my posts I found it.
Oh dear. I'm transported back to 2008, I can see myself, 9 years younger, walking to the Iona Technologies office, completely wired on trying to stop the Jersey JAX-RS domination :-), spotting an ad of the latest Christina Aguilera's albom on the exit from the Lansdowne Dart station and thinking, it would be fun, trying to blog about it and link to CXF, welcome to the start of the [OT] series. I'm not sure now if I'm more surprised it was actually me who did write that post or that 9 years later I'm still here, talking about CXF :-).
Let me get back to the actual subject of this post. You know CXF started quite late with embracing Swagger, and I'm still getting nervous whenever I remind myself Swagger does not support 'matrix' parameters :-). But the Swagger team has done a massive effort through the years, my CXF hat is off to them.
I'm happy to say that now Apache CXF offers one of the best Swagger2 integrations around, at the JSON only and UI levels and it just keeps getting better.
We've talked recently with Dennis Kieselhorst and one can now configure Swagger2Feature with the external properties file which can be especially handy when this feature is auto-discovered.
Just at the last minute we resolved an issue reported by a CXF user to do with accessing Swagger UI from the reverse proxies.
Finally, Freeman contributed a java2swagger Maven plugin.
Swagger 3 will be supported as soon as possible too.
