Swagger UI Support for Entities with Specializations

Automatic generation of the Swagger UI is a very useful feature of version 7 of the modeler, but it lacks some support for entities with specializations. The Models section in the Swagger UI is not present unless using a Message Definition as the schema source for the export mappings being used in the Published REST service resource. Since the Message Definition doesn’t support traversal from a generalized entity to a specialization of that entity, there isn’t any way to generate a Model for these resources.   It would be nice if the modeler utilized another resource besides the Message Definition to generate the entity schema in the swagger.json. Another solution could be to add support for entity specialization traversal to the Message Definition resource.
