I want to override the behaviour of WebSphere virtual host in mime-type mappings:
I want to know how to define this in web.xml, specially the problem in having several extensions to the same mime type like the following example, plz supply example:
<mime type="video/mpeg">
<ext>mpg</ext>
<ext>mpe</ext>
<ext>MPEG</ext>
<ext>mpeg</ext>
<ext>MPG</ext>
<ext>MPE</ext>
</mime>

The original problem:
is that I can't c the doc, ppt, jar files in WebSphere 3.5.5 they appear as garpage instead I want any file to be displayed if the cliet machine has it plugin as if Office was installed & to display save as dialog for other files as jar.
The strange thing is that .pdf files appear correctly & .zip files make the save as dialog appear but others display rubbish.
If anyone faced this problem & have solution for any type plz reply
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
