Subject Web.xml - mime-type definition for file without extension
Date Thu, 16 Nov 2006 08:53:07 GMT

Here is my situation: I have audio files that are not named "foo.wav"
but "foo". As a consequence, Tomcat does not define a content-type for
these files as "audio/x-wav" since they are not matching with the
extension ".wav". Finally, they are not correctly interpreted by the

I have tried to define the following mime-mapping in this way, but it does not work:

<!-- For files without extension, default mime-type is "audio/x-wav" -->





<!-- Of course, for *.wav files, the mime-type is also "audio/x-wav" -->





Is there a way to define the content-type in Tomcat config files
to say files without extension have a mime-type set to "audio/x-wav"?

(If possible, I'd like to avoid using a servlet to set the mime-type for files without extension).

Your advice are very welcomed!

Thanks in advance.
