- All Known Subinterfaces:
@ProviderType public interface MimeTypeServiceThe
MimeTypeServicedefines the service applications can call to resolve file names to MIME types and derive default file name extensions from MIME types.
This interface is not intended to be implemented by bundles. It is implemented by this bundle and may be used by client bundles.
All Methods Instance Methods Abstract Methods Modifier and Type Method Description
getExtension(String mimeType)Returns the primary name extension to which the given
getMimeType(String name)Returns the MIME type of the extension of the given
registerMimeType(InputStream mimeTabStream)Register MIME types stored in the given input stream formatted as a regular MIME type file format: One entry per line.
registerMimeType(String mimeType, String... extensions)Dynamically register a new mime type with one or more file name extensions.
getMimeTypeReturns the MIME type of the extension of the given
name. The extension is the part of the name after the last dot. If the name does not contain a dot, the name as a whole is assumed to be the extension.
name- The name for which the MIME type is to be returned.
- The MIME type for the extension of the name. If the extension
cannot be mapped to a MIME type or

getExtensionReturns the primary name extension to which the given
mimeTypemaps. The returned extension must map to the given
mimeTypewhen fed to the
getMimeType(String)method. In other words, the expression
mimeType.equals(getMimeType(getExtension(mimeType)))must always be
truefor any non-
A MIME type may be mapped to multiple extensions (e.g.
log, ...). This method is expected to returned one of those extensions. It is up to the implementation to select an appropriate extension if multiple mappings exist for a single MIME type.
mimeType- The MIME type whose primary extension is requested.
- A extension which maps to the given MIME type or
nullif no such mapping exists.
- See Also:
registerMimeTypeDynamically register a new mime type with one or more file name extensions. The first of those extensions is assumed to be default file name extension.
This registration is dynamic and not persisted.
mimeType- The MIME type to register
extensions- One or more file name extensions (without leading dot) to register for the MIME type.
void registerMimeType(InputStream mimeTabStream) throws IOExceptionRegister MIME types stored in the given input stream formatted as a regular MIME type file format: One entry per line. Each entry consists of two or more whitespace delimited fields where the first field is the MIME type and the rest of the fields are the file extensions. The first of the extensions is considered the default extension. Empty lines and lines starting with a hash sign (
#) are ignored.
The stream is assumed to contain string data encoded with "ISO-8859-1".
This method reads the stream until an
IOExceptionoccurs or until it has been fully read. The stream is not closed, though, by this method.
mimeTabStream- The stream to read the MIME type mappings from
IOException- If an error occurs reading from the stream
