Subject Re: content negotiation with tomcat
Date Wed, 09 Apr 2003 04:02:11 GMT
If you mean the Apache "mime-magic" module, then, no Tomcat doesn't have a
similar feature (patches are always welcome :).

Mime-types for static content in Tomcat (as well as the rest of the
spec-complient Servlet world) are still based on the file-extension.
