Adds CORS to Application. CORS Middleware out of the box in RestRserve to turn on/off the CORS Headers on preflight validation from the browser.

Cross Origin Resource Sharing is an additional security check done by moderns browsers to avoid request between different domains. To allow it RestRserve has easy way to enable your CORS policies. By default CORS policies are disabled. So if any request is coming from a different domain will be blocked by the browser as default because RestRserve will not send the headers required by the browser to allow cross site resource sharing. You can change this easy just by providing CORSMiddleware as middleware to the Application.
