Please have a look at the javadocs. content-type sets a fixed mimetype
for the generated data while type-column specifies the column that
stores the mimetype. So change it to

        <map:parameter name="type-column" value="mimetype"/>

BTW the upload sample in the databases block demos this usage.

No need to -- that has already been done :-)
