            Springboot 2.6.0 / Spring fox 3 - Failed to start bean 'documentationPluginsBootstrapper'
            Asked 2022-Mar-25 at 06:14

            I'm trying to initiate a Springboot project using Open Jdk 15, Springboot 2.6.0, Springfox 3. We are working on a project that replaced Netty as the webserver and used Jetty instead because we do not need a non-blocking environment.

            In the code we depend primarily on Reactor API (Flux, Mono), so we can not remove org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-webflux dependencies.

            I replicated the problem that we have in a new project.: https://github.com/jvacaq/spring-fox.

            I figured out that these lines in our build.gradle file are the origin of the problem.



            Answered 2022-Feb-08 at 12:36

            This problem's caused by a bug in Springfox. It's making an assumption about how Spring MVC is set up that doesn't always hold true. Specifically, it's assuming that MVC's path matching will use the Ant-based path matcher and not the PathPattern-based matcher. PathPattern-based matching has been an option for some time now and is the default as of Spring Boot 2.6.

            As described in Spring Boot 2.6's release notes, you can restore the configuration that Springfox assumes will be used by setting spring.mvc.pathmatch.matching-strategy to ant-path-matcher in your application.properties file. Note that this will only work if you are not using Spring Boot's Actuator. The Actuator always uses PathPattern-based parsing, irrespective of the configured matching-strategy. A change to Springfox will be required if you want to use it with the Actuator in Spring Boot 2.6 and later.

            Spring Boot 3.0 is built for Java17 and JakartaEE, not JavaEE. Spring Boot 3 is still under development and hasn't seen a final release yet. There has been no official release date yet, but expect nothing sooner than Q4 of 2022. Until then I wouldn't consider Spring Boot 3 for production (or maybe when they start releasing Release Candidates).

            That being said, there is currently no SpringFox release that supports JakartaEE and therefore isn't usable with Spring Boot 3 (see this). So until that has been resolved the combination of SpringFox and Spring Boot 3 won't work.

            Use 2.6.x (which at this moment is the latest release version of Spring Boot).

            Answered 2021-Aug-01 at 06:17

            Please note that Spring Cloud Gateway is not compatible with Spring MVC (spring-boot-starter-web). This is outlined in section "How to include Spring Cloud Gateway in the official reference documentation":

            Spring Cloud Gateway is built on Spring Boot 2.x, Spring WebFlux, and Project Reactor. As a consequence, many of the familiar synchronous libraries (Spring Data and Spring Security, for example) and patterns you know may not apply when you use Spring Cloud Gateway.

            Additionally, it is stated that:

            Spring Cloud Gateway requires the Netty runtime provided by Spring Boot and Spring Webflux. It does not work in a traditional Servlet Container or when built as a WAR.

            As already suggested by the error message, you would need to remove the dependency on spring-boot-starter-web. You can list all your direct and transitive dependencies with the following command:

            There’s a relatively new Gradle feature called “version catalogs”. With those you can centrally declare dependencies that you’d like to share between multiple projects of your build (or even between different builds).

            In your concrete example, you’d add something like the following to your settings.gradle file:

            Answered 2021-Dec-01 at 02:17

            I know this does not solve your problem directly, but consider moving to springdoc which most recent release supports Spring Boot 2.6.0. Springfox is so buggy at this point that is a pain to use. I've moved to springdoc 2 years ago because of its Spring WebFlux support and I am very happy about it. Additionally, it also supports Kotlin Coroutines, which I am not sure Springfox does.

            If you decide to migrate, springdoc even has a migration guide.

            Are you using Spring WebClient to do REST backend calls? If that's the case, then something is wrong with your WebClient bean configuration for the analyticsService for the test profile.

            If your're not using Spring Webflux, just remove it from the dependencies.

            How do I control tag order in Springdoc OpenAPI 3.0?
            Asked 2022-Jan-21 at 12:37

            I'm switching from Springfox 3.0 to OpenAPI 3.0 + Springdoc-openapi.
            In Springfox the tag order is alphabetical, but in Springdoc's Swagger UI, the order appears to be random.

            How do I control the Tag order on the UI? I'd prefer an ordering of my choosing, but would be OK with ordering alphabetically by tag name.

            I am using FeignClient for Rest API calls, here is Use case as explained below.

            I am having 2 different Services which are Authorized with Basic Authentication, with both different Authentications.

            Answered 2022-Jan-09 at 19:23

            Since you are marking FeignClientConfiguration1 and FeignClientConfiguration2 classes with the @Configuration annotation, they'll be picked up "globally" for the Spring context which essentially means those beans relevant for Feign will be applied to all Feign clients.

            I see you specified the configuration attribute on your @FeignClient annotation but that won't "undo" the global configuration.

            The way to go is to remove the @Configuration annotation from FeignClientConfiguration1 and FeignClientConfiguration2 and use the @FeignClient configuration attribute only.
