Class ContentType

  • public final class ContentType
    extends java.lang.Object
    Represents a immutable MIME ContentType value (RFC 2616 §3.7)

    media-type = type "/" subtype *( ";" parameter ) type = token
    subtype = token

    Rule M1.13 : Package implementers shall only create and only recognize parts with a content type; format designers shall specify a content type for each part included in the format. Content types for package parts shall fit the definition and syntax for media types as specified in RFC 2616, \§3.7.

    Rule M1.14: Content types shall not use linear white space either between the type and subtype or between an attribute and its value. Content types also shall not have leading or trailing white spaces. Package implementers shall create only such content types and shall require such content types when retrieving a part from a package; format designers shall specify only such content types for inclusion in the format.
