My Java App IE8 Readiness Toolkit!

Oh joy, another major HTML/CSS rendering engine for me to test my web applications against and I really cannot be bothered. IE8 may well turn out to be a really good thing but my early experiences of IE8 Beta are that it makes a right royal mess of my CSS/DHTML powered applications so until IE8 renders like IE7 and Firefox here is my servlet filter solution for my Java applications:


package edu.bristol;

import java.io.IOException;
import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;

public class FixForIE8 implements Filter {

public void init(FilterConfig filterConfig)
throws ServletException {
}

public void doFilter(ServletRequest request,
ServletResponse response,
FilterChain chain)
throws IOException, ServletException {
((HttpServletResponse) response).setHeader("X-UA-Compatible", "IE=EmulateIE7");
chain.doFilter(request, response);
}

public void destroy() {
}
}
