Are you excited about OpenAPI 3.0?

Here's why it matters: The Swagger 2.0 specification was released 2½ years ago, emerging as the de facto industry standard for API definition and documentation. SmartBear made it official a year later, in November 2015 with the formation of the OpenAPI Initiative under the Linux Foundation, with Google, IBM, Microsoft and others as founding members.

The next generation of API modeling is now here. With the OpenAPI Spec v3 Draft release, developers can describe a broader range of modern REST APIs in greater detail, including hyperlinks, webhooks, better JSON Schema support, rich examples, and more.

At RepreZen, we're excited and working hard to bring the full range of OpenAPI 3.0's expanded capabilities into the RepreZen API Studio design experience. KaiZen OpenAPI Parser, now available on GitHub, is the first cornerstone of our open source stack for OpenAPI 3, based on the draft spec. It's built for speed, and highly configurable. If you're building OpenAPI 3 tooling or solutions in Java, this is a great place to start.
