Swagger is widely used for visualizing APIs, and with Swagger UI it provides online sandbox for frontend developers. Swagger is a tool, a specification and a complete framework implementation for producing the visual representation of RESTful Web Services. It enables documentation to be updated at the same pace as the server.

When properly defined via Swagger, a consumer can understand and interact with the remote service with a minimal amount of implementation logic. Thus Swagger removes the guesswork in calling the service.

It is very easy to integrate with spring boot. We need to add the below dependency.

And Need to define the springdoc.api-docs.path in properties file like below

After that you will see the swagger document page by hitting http://host:port/swagger-ui.html
