Schema Operations

Inferred schemas can be used just like manually created ones. This means that you can use them in assertions to validate your responses. You can export them together with the generated WADL for distribution, or use them with code-generating tools. You can also use them to generate HTML documentation for your service.

For more information, see WADL Content Editor.
