Claus Köll commented on JCR-1172:

hi julian.

i am using the new Office 2007 products as webdav client. 
We do not have webfolders we crap the content always with the ApplicationClient itself.
i dont know if MsWord sends a header with the mimetype but i will check it ..

yes thats true

have to remove the resource and add the replacement. 

i think this scenrio that you open a word file and then save as excel is not realistic.

to add mimetypes through a configuration would be fine so we can add other formats.

> After saving a Excel File through WebDAV the mimetype will be changed.
> The mimetype for a Win2000 Exel File is application/vnd.ms-excel. This will be changed
to application/msexcel.
> Also problems makes the new office 07 format (docx,xlsx,pptx). They will also be changed
to application/octet-stream (default mimetype).
> We have a lot of file types that we store in jackrabbit that are not in the properties
file (MSInfoPath-, OutlookMsg-, MsAccess-Files, ...)
> I think it will be better to let the mimetype property untouched if a mimetype is present
so we must not put all the possible mimetypes in the property file.
