Subject Wrong Content-Type when uploading via Webdav
Date Fri, 17 Feb 2012 14:48:25 GMT
Hi all, 

Uploading files via the Webdav servlet results to wrong content types under Mac OS X.

I mount a Jackrabbit (version 2.2.5) workspace under Mac OS X and copy files (e.g. images)
using the Finder.
The problem is that the file is stored in the repository always as application/xml (javax.jcr.Property.JCR_MIMETYPE)
regardless what file is copied.

As a workaround I wrote a Servlet-Filter that sets the Content-Type according to the http
path. This filter is processed just before the WebdavServlet.
While the PUT operation is processed the content type is read from the http request header

  org.apache.jackrabbit.server.io.ImportContextImpl.ImportContextImpl(Item, String, InputContext,
InputStream, IOListener, Detector) line 81.

However the "real" mimetype is determined using Apache Tika (it seems the Content-Type is
just a hint or so...).

I have no idea why this leads always to "application/xml" when using MAC OS as client (maybe
the stream is missing some magic bytes).

Does anybody have an idea how to fix this? Is there a way to force Jackrabbit to use a certain
A workaround using a filter or so would be fine for me...

Thanks in advance and best regards
