Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS)

Cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) is an interesting technology that will be very useful for one of our new upcoming products. It is a technology that will allow us to use the Browser as a proxy to connect to a different machine using Javascript. It is also supported by all modern browsers, which is a good thing.

This technique, when combined with XMLHTTP connections will allow us to effectively create a tunnel between the primary server and a secondary server via the browser. This allows the public server to communicate directly with the private server across the web-browser using pure Javascript.

This is exciting…
