Let’s have a sneak peek at a new feature of the Restlet Client (fka DHC) API testing tool: the ability to import a whole Swagger 2.0 API definition!

Launch Restlet Client (or install it from the Chrome Web Store), and look at the new import feature, in the bottom left hand corner:

dhc-import-swagger

Let’s pick up the Swagger file:

dhc-import-swagger-pick-file

And voila, all the operations of the good old Petstore API definition are loaded!

dhc-import-swagger-loaded

Now you can quickly test any operation by launching requests at your API!

Currently, this feature is in preview, as we only import version 2 of Swagger and only its JSON variant. But we’re interested in hearing about your feedback on which API definition format and versions you’re interested in, so please give us feedback!
