    Resolution: Not A Problem

> Use application/xml as the XML media type
> -----------------------------------------
>                 Key: JCR-1621
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-1621
>             Project: Jackrabbit Content Repository
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: jackrabbit-webdav
>            Reporter: Jukka Zitting
>            Priority: Minor
> As noted in JCR-1310, at least in jackrabbit-webapp but possibly also elsewhere we should
be using application/xml instead of text/xml as the content type when serving XML over HTTP.
> The text/xml type has been widely criticized because of character encoding issues (see
for example http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2004/07/21/dive.html), and there has even been an attempt
to officially deprecate text/xml because of this. The application/xml type doesn't suffer
from these issues, and is thus a better choice when serving XML.
