- A step-by-step guide but at a high level/fast pace. Not all steps are covered as a basic knowledge is assumed
- Provides a basic overview of the concepts but the focus is on providing the practical skills required to develop applications
- Focuses on providing practical examples
This book explains how to use CORS, including specific implementations for platforms such as Drupal, WordPress, IIS Server, ASP.NET, JBoss, Windows Azure, and Salesforce, as well as how to use CORS in the Cloud on Amazon AWS, YouTube, Mulesoft, and others. It examines limitations, security risks, and alternatives to CORS. It explores the W3C Specification and major developer documentation sources about CORS. It attempts to predict what kinds of extension to the CORS specification, or completely new techniques, will come in the future to address the limitations of CORS
Web developers will learn how to share code and assets across domains with CORS. They will learn a variety of techniques that are rather similar in their method and syntax. The book is organized by similar types of framework and application, so it can be used as a reference. Developers will learn about special cases, such as when a proxy is necessary. And they will learn about some alternative techniques that achieve similar goals, and when they may be preferable to using CORS

- Security: vulnerabilities and how to secure your CORS application
- CORS implementations in Content Management systems
- Learn about CORS in Windows applications
- Take CORS on the Cloud
