Subject [repository] mime type addition?
Date Wed, 12 Nov 2003 13:21:21 GMT

Have started some experimentation with content negotiation
and I think I need a mime type addition to server running

I have setup the following test content:


This contains a single jar file and a test file containing
metadata about the jar file.


I've also put together a little test case that creates a url
to the artifact http://www.apache.org/~mcconnell/example
and then sets the "accept" request parameter to "text/x-meta".
Presumably the mime type used here ("text/x-meta") needs to be
declared on the Apache server with a mapping to the ".meta"

Does anyone know if this is something I can configure
in the enclosing directory - or do I need post a request to

Here is a fragment of the relevant java source:

   URL url = new URL( "http://www.apache.org/~mcconnell/test/example" );
   URLConnection connection = url.openConnection();
   connection.setRequestProperty( "accept", "text/x-meta" );
   getLogger().info( "input" );
   InputStream input = (InputStream) connection.getContent();
   Properties properties = new Properties();
   properties.load( input );

Without the mime mapping the above code will result in the stuffing
of the jar file into the properties file which is not exactly
what we want.

Cheers, Steve.
