Swagger Core Jersey 2 – Empty API listing / Resources not listed

Recently, I tried following “Swagger-Core-Jersey-2.X-Project-Setup-1.5” guide. After doing everything correct, identified that “swagger.json” file does not contain API listing. Output was something similar to :

{“swagger”:”2.0″,”info”:{“version”:”1.0.0″,”title”:””},”host”:”localhost:8080″,”basePath”:”/com.example/rest”,”schemes”:[“http”] }

I was unable to find a solution anywhere around, even though similar issues were discussed here and there. Finally, decided to dig into source code and identified that in line 183 of Reader class, it is expected to add an additional @Api annotation to API classes (in addition to @Path annotation) in order to get it listed in Swagger file. Therefore, an example class would look something like :

package com.example.listing;

import io.swagger.annotations.Api;

import javax.ws.rs.BeanParam;
import javax.ws.rs.POST;
import javax.ws.rs.Path;
import javax.ws.rs.Produces;
import javax.ws.rs.core.MediaType;

public class ListingService {

	public Response list(@BeanParam ListingParam listingParam) {
		Response response = new Response();
		return response;


This is well documented in Swagger-Core Annotations documentation. But surely is easy to miss if you only look at “Swagger-Core-Jersey-2.X-Project-Setup-1.5” documentation and if you are new to Swagger-Core.

    Additionally, it is the PSP agario hack no down load no review in renovation and
    design, but AFAIK( and are described slaughtered), the
    moon became done only and has now sharpened from the superior Mozilla separation – there had no article of Netfront
