This tool generates a Jolie client starting from an openapi 2.0 definition. The generated client can be embedded or exposed as a service to be invoked by other jolie services using sodep protocol. The usage of the tool follows:

Usage: openapi2jolie <url|filepath> <service_name> <output_folder> <protocol http|https>


  • url|filepath: it defines the url or the filepath of the openapi specification to convert.

  • service_name: it is the name of the service client to be generated

  • output_folder: it is the output folder where storing the generated client

  • http|https: it defines the protocol to use for preparing the client

As a result the tool generates two files:

  • <service_name>Client.ol: it is the actual client to be embedded or exposed as a jolie service

  • <service_name>Interface.iol: it is the jolie interface obtained from the conversion


In order to show how the tool openapi2jolie works, let us try to generate a client for the PetStore example released by the Swagger community which can be found here. Run the openapi2jolie tool as it follows:

openapi2jolie SwaggerPetStore . https

two files are generated:

  • SwaggerPetStoreClient.ol

  • SwaggerPetStoreInterface.iol

The client can be now embedded in a jolie service for invoking the rest service described the openapi at url Here in the following we report a jolie script which invokes api /user/{username}

include "SwaggerPetStoreInterface.iol"
include "string_utils.iol"
include "console.iol"
outputPort SwaggerPetStoreClient {
Location: "local"
Protocol: sodep
Interfaces: SwaggerPetStoreInterface
embedded {
"SwaggerPetStoreClient.ol" in SwaggerPetStoreClient
main {
request.username = "user2"
