Jetty Support for Cross-Domain XMLHttpRequests

Remember the same origin policy that restricts most of our JavaScript applications ?

Seems that we can finally get rid of it, thanks to a new W3C specification already implemented by Firefox 3.5 and, on server side, by the Jetty Servlet Container.

I blogged about all the details here.

Oh, if you're using Ubuntu Jaunty, you can install Firefox 3.5 via apt://firefox-3.5. It is named "Shiretoko" (its codename), but it's exactly Firefox 3.5.

Time to move on !
