CORS Stateless REST Service with detached HTML5 client

Introduction

This blog will detail in precise steps how to create a stateless REST service that is consumed by a HTML5 client on another domain. The HTML5 client could easily be a Cordova or Phonegap app.

The HTML5 client is simple and basic just for demonstration purposes. It shows the characteristics necessary for Cross-Origin-Resource-Sharing (CORS) communication.

The REST service is also simple. It demonstrates how to enable CORS on the server application.

While both Client and Server projects are proliferated throughout this blog, the completed artifacts are available for download at the bottom of this page.
