Handle CORS problem using java (Servlet/Filter)

Handle CORS problem using java (Servlet/Filter)

1. Make a Filter to handle all CORS request

import java.io.IOException;
import javax.servlet.Filter;
import javax.servlet.FilterChain;
import javax.servlet.FilterConfig;
import javax.servlet.ServletException;
import javax.servlet.ServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.ServletResponse;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;

 * Servlet Filter implementation class CORSFilter
public class CORSFilter implements Filter {

    public CORSFilter() {
        // TODO Auto-generated constructor stub

    public void destroy() {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub

    public void doFilter(ServletRequest servletRequest, ServletResponse servletResponse, FilterChain chain) throws IOException, ServletException {
        HttpServletRequest request = (HttpServletRequest) servletRequest;
        HttpServletResponse resp = (HttpServletResponse) servletResponse;
        resp.addHeader("Access-Control-Allow-Headers","Origin, X-Requested-With, Content-Type, Accept, access-token");

        // Just ACCEPT and reply OK if OPTIONS for prefetch request
        if ( request.getMethod().equals("OPTIONS") ) {
        chain.doFilter(request, servletResponse);

    public void init(FilterConfig fConfig) throws ServletException {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub

2. Use this filter in web.xml

Now you can use all request in another application where it will by pass CORS errors.
