Swagger for WebApi

Swashbuckle – Swagger for WebApi
 Recently I had faced issue while working with large team; more or less currently, we are targeting our application architecture as SOA/ Rest. While doing so we sometimes face issue related to documentation for method/api action part and keep trailing for input/ output signature for the entity to implement. Therefore, I thought to write a step to ease this problem with proper documentation and  API explorer

Swagger is a unique technique to represent RESTfull Web API. We can configure Swagger in web application. It’s easy to use and integrate inside our MVC WebAPI project.
In other words, we can say, Swagger is technique, which enable cross team / Dev/UX to seamlessly work with integrated environment without any hurdle, which includes each and everything from the front-end user interfaces.We can say this is  API management solutions.

            constraints: null,
            handler: new RedirectHandler((message => message.RequestUri.ToString()), “swagger”));
