Configuring Tomcat for JWS

Hello All,
I'm using Apache Tomcat 5. I want to write an application build around JWS.

I want to configure the servlet container to use the appropriate MIME type. The server must return the application/x-java-jnlp-file MIME type for JNLP files in order for Java Web Start to invoke.

How can I do that?
