Swagger Module Introduction

The Swagger module provides a Swagger 2.0 REST API validation API to Qore.

The primary classes provided by this module:

  • SwaggerLoader: provides static methods for loading Swagger schemas
  • SwaggerSchema: the Swagger schema object for client/server REST API validation and example code and message generation

This class is most often used in the RestClient and RestHandler modules to register a Swagger 2.0 schema for automatic REST API validation.

JSON and YAML serialization and deserialization are supported; XML is currently not supported.

Swagger Usage

Swagger Client-Side Usage

Use the swagger or validator options in the RestClient::constructor() call to use Swagger 2.0 REST schema validation on the client side with the RestClient class.

To override the target URL specified in the Swagger schema, use the "url" option in the RestClient::constructor() call.

To override the URI base path specified in the Swagger schema, get the Swagger schema object by calling RestClient::getValidator(), and then call AbstractRestSchemaValidator::setBasePath() on the validator object.

Client Example
1 %new-style
2 %strict-args
3 %require-types
4 %enable-all-warnings
6 # the RestClient module imports and reexports the Swagger module automatically
7 %requires RestClient
9 # create the RestClient options with a Swagger schema
10 hash opts = (
11  "swagger": ENV.SCHEMA_DIR + DirSep + "MySchema.yaml",
12 );
14 # there is no need to add the "url" option if the target URL provided by the schema is valid
15 # (otherwise you can override the target URL provided by the Swagger schema by using the
16 # "url" option in the RestClient constructor options)
17 RestClient rc(opts);
19 # afterwards all REST calls made with the RestClient objects with automatic Swagger 2.0
20 # schema validation; do not include the Swagger schema's basePath in the URI path in the
21 # requests
22 hash h = rc.get("get", "/some_api");
Override Base Path Client Example
1 # create the RestClient options with a Swagger schema
2 hash opts = (
3  "swagger": ENV.SCHEMA_DIR + DirSep + "MySchema.yaml",
4 );
5 RestClient rc(opts);
6 # get the SwaggerSchema validator object
7 AbstractRestSchemaValidator schema = rc.getValidator();
8 # override the base path in requests
9 schema.setBasePath("/new/path");

Swagger Server-Side Usage

Enforce Swagger REST API validation on the server side by passing a SwaggerSchema object to the RestHandler::constructor() call as in the following example.

Server Example
1 %new-style
2 %strict-args
3 %require-types
4 %enable-all-warnings
6 %requires RestHandler
7 %requires Swagger
9 SwaggerSchema swagger = SwaggerLoader::fromFile(ENV.SCHEMA_DIR + DirSep + "MySchema.yaml");
10 RestHandler handler(NOTHING, swagger);
