Content Type Mapping Class??

Hello helpful people...
Is there a standard class (Sun or public domain) that maps most standard file extensions to the content-type setting used in HttpServletResponse.setContentType( String ).
Either that, or is there a link to file extensions and content-types?
Thanks very much in advance for your help.
