    Description

      Sometimes it is necessary to add a new mime type for a local installation.
      Doing this is currently done by:

      1. edit the file WEB-INF/applicationContext.xml in the webapp folder by uncommenting:

        <!--
        <bean name="mimeTpes" class="org.apache.archiva.webdav.util.MimeTypes">
          <property name="resource" value="archiva-mime-types.txt"/>
        </bean>
        -->
      

      So you can use your own file.

      2. Then Copy the original
      (http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/archiva/trunk/archiva-modules/archiva-web/archiva-webdav/src/main/resources/org/apache/archiva/webdav/util/mime.types) to WEB-INF/classes/archiva-mime-types.txt and add or change a mime type line.

      This would be much easier if this could be configurable by beeing able to set the mime-types file in the achiva config file. And preferably being able to do it via the GUI.

      As a minimum we should be able to set the filename.
      As an advanced and possible future solution we could set and unset each line from that file.
