[RFE] text/xml mime type not listed in default web.xml

           Summary: [RFE] text/xml mime type not listed in default web.xml
           Product: Tomcat 4
           Version: 4.1.10
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Catalina
        AssignedTo: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
        ReportedBy: [EMAIL PROTECTED]


I was having Tomcat serve up xml pages and I couldn't figure out why, in 
response wrapper used in my filter that the setContentType(String) that I was 
overriding was never getting called.

Turns out that Tomcat's default servlet doesn't call setContentType(String) 
unless a mime-type has been defined in either Tomcat's conf/web.xml or the 
webapps's WEB-INF/web.xml.  I didn't have it defined in my own webapp because I 
assumed that such a common file type would have been already listed in 
conf/web.xml.  When I added the text/xml mime type to my own web.xml, 
everything worked as expected.

I propose that, at the very least, the following mime types get added to 
Tomcat's conf/web.xml to avoid future confusion ...

<mime-mapping>
    <extension>xml</extension>
    <mime-type>text/xml</mime-type>
</mime-mapping>

<mime-mapping>
    <extension>xsl</extension>
    <mime-type>text/xml</mime-type>
</mime-mapping>
