Allow cross domain scripting in mvc web application


I have a web application and im using spring mvc. I need to allow cross domain scripting (i need that a web service that i externalize can be accessed by javascript). I wrote a crossdomain.xml and i put it under the WEB-INF folder. This is my crossdomain.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <cross-domain-policy> <allow-access-from domain="*" /> </cross-domain-policy>

I have searched around and saw that the crossdomain.xml should be accessable from this URL: "<em>localhost:8080/crossdomain.xml</em>"<br /> the thing is that the mvc is rerouting the request to the main controller (with RequestMapping annotation of "/"). How can i overcome this using spring mvc?<br /> Thank you.


crossdomain.xml is used <em>only</em> by flash, so that's probably not what you actually want.

If you want cross domain xhr requests done with javascript, you should be using either CORS or JSONP, see this <a href="https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10047584/browser-doesnt-follow-redirect-from-an-ajax-response-php-generated-response-i/10048020#10048020" rel="nofollow">related question</a>

CORS example:

access-control-allow-origin: http://api.example.com access-control-allow-credentials: true

JSONP example (with jQuery, requires server side support):

$.ajax({ type: "GET", url: "https://domain.com/jsonp-service", dataType: "JSONP" });


There is a special integration between jax rs jersey implementation and spring. all explained in this blog <a href="https://blogs.oracle.com/enterprisetechtips/entry/jersey_and_spring" rel="nofollow">Jersey Spring integration</a>
