Hi there.

Just finished reading v8 of the MEAP. This is shaping up to be a great book! I love the practical approach, and the difficulty level is just right for me.

How about support for dynamic api documentation?
Developer documentation for microservices is like gold-dust in many software shops.
Where I work, we use swagger-ui.

Would this be something you'd consider covering a bit more in the book?

Hi David,

I agree with you that Swagger docs are like gold. I did not cover them in the book as Spring did not have any Native support for Swagger integration. However, there is the SpringFox project that does implement Swagger. Here is an excellent tutorial on how to use SpringFox and Spring Boot to add Swagger to your docs.

Thanks,
