CORS and Jetty/eXist
Posted by gregster on 12 Jun 2015 in Documentation
If you want to make an AJAX call to get, say, some JSON from eXist you'll need to allow it (because of the CORS thing).
You can add a stanza to Jetty's web.xml file ($exist-home-dir/webapp/WEB-INF/web.xml) like this:
<filter> <filter-name>cross-origin</filter-name> <filter-class>org.eclipse.jetty.servlets.CrossOriginFilter</filter-class> </filter> <filter-mapping> <filter-name>cross-origin</filter-name> <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern> </filter-mapping>
which will allow all external requests. Probably not what you want in production, but you can fiddle the url-pattern to suit.
