Customer application cannot tell properly if the incoming request is AJAX or not.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Use a browser to go to the customer web application
2. It will treat this as a standard request instead of an AJAX request.
3. Customer code determines this by reading the "X-Requested-With" HTTP header

Example Ajax request.

POST /example/cpa/getReportTypes? HTTP/1.1
Accept: */*
Accept-Language: en-us
x-requested-with: XMLHttpRequest
