D2-Config vs IE11

In spite of the fact that D2 has no practical interest for me (it has a good collection of anti-patters though), yesterday one of my skypemates asked me how to make D2-Config work in IE11. The problem is EMC added http-equiv attributes into D2 pages but forgot about D2-Config, so D2-Config does not work in IE11.

I know three options to resolve this issue:

  1. If you use apache httpd as reverse proxy it is enough to add Header set X-UA-Compatible “IE=EmulateIE7” into httpd.conf
  2. You can achieve the same on application server side using urlrewritefilter, something like:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE urlrewrite PUBLIC "-//tuckey.org//DTD UrlRewrite 4.0//EN" 
            <set type="response-header" name="X-UA-Compatible">IE=EmulateIE7</set>
  3. And finally, you can code your own filter:
    import javax.servlet.*;
    import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;
    import java.io.IOException;
    public class IEFilter implements Filter {
        public void doFilter(ServletRequest request, ServletResponse response, FilterChain chain) 
                throws IOException, ServletException {
            HttpServletResponse res = (HttpServletResponse) response;
            res.addHeader("X-UA-Compatible", "IE=EmulateIE7");
            chain.doFilter(request, response);
        public void destroy() {
        public void init(FilterConfig filterConfig) throws ServletException {
