--- Comment #1 from Konstantin Kolinko <> ---
AFAIK, Nothing is broken with the current list of mime-mappings in Tomcat 6, so
I am marking this as enhancement.

Several notes

1. web.xml in Tomcat 7 is 100 kilobytes larger than the one in Tomcat 6.

I wouldn't be wondered if the time to parse those additional 3000 lines and the
memory used to store the mappings for each deployed application were noticeable
in some configurations.

2. There is nothing wrong with having your own copy of web.xml to replace the
one provided by Tomcat.

I would not expect many changes to the default web.xml in Tomcat 6, so you do
not need to update your copy.

3. Tomcat 6 is RTC, so someone has to prepare the actual patch to be proposed
for a vote.

Personally, I think it is too late to backport such enhancement to Tomcat 6.
Though if anyone else goes with it, I wouldn't mind. Maybe ask on opinions on

Are there any more requests for this?
