In last post we had explained how to configure Apache to allow cross domain scripting. details can be found here

Cross domain Scripting problem with XmlHttp

If you do not plan to use Apache and for some reasons using tomcat or any other similar web container which supports filter, here is a ready made solution, Cors Filter

This gives you a servlet filter which is compatible with any Java Servlet 2.5+ web container.

Installation is very simple. Add the jar to your libraries

In you web.xml

add this line



And you are all set
