I think so. For our product, the current Juneau HTML static UI for the
Swagger file is not acceptable, so I have to do something.

I am going to have to replace the Juneau HTML with the Swagger version,
either 'on the side' or as a change set that is more of an integration with

I am not sure when I will work on this but it will be sooner rather than
later so perhaps we can collaborate.

No licensing issue as swagger-ui uses the Apache 2.0 license:

I plan on using the Swagger code no matter what. I do not see the point in
re-inventing the wheel. Unless Juneau provides something just as good and
pretty as swagger-ui. But again, why reinvent that.

Approach #2 would be more work (probably).

Thank you. I can figure this kind of stuff just by digging through the
code, but it would be nice to save time for others and document it.
