WebDAV drag and drop mime type for .msg files
I have added nuxeo xml extensions for the .msg file extension with a mime type of “application/vnd.ms-outlook” in two places:
<mimetype normalized="application/vnd.ms-outlook" binary="true" iconPath="email.png" onlineEditable="true" oleSupported="true"> <mimetypes> <mimetype>application/vnd.ms-outlook</mimetype> </mimetypes> <extensions> <extension>msg</extension> </extensions> </mimetype>
<mime-mapping> <extension>msg</extension> <mime-type>application/vnd.ms-outlook</mime-type> </mime-mapping>
When I drag and drop an email from ms-outlook email client to a Nuxeo webDAV folder the mime type of .msg file extension files is application/octet-stream, this causes the mime-type the check for the application/vnd.ms-outlook mime type to fail and therefore no conversion of the email takes place as outlined in the blog reference above.
Question: How do I change the mime type for a file which is drag and dropped into Nuxeo through the webDAV interface? I need to see application/vnd.ms-outlook for .msg file extensions.
Using the method call (shown below) to the mimeService in Nuxeo as well as adding a mime extensions for .msg allows me to detect the .msg files even though they are originally set to application/octet-stream. I can then change the mimeType in the Blob to application/vnd.ms-outlook.
I looks like the Nuxeo code just sets everything dropped into a webDAV workspace as an application/octet-stream without any checking; was this done for performance??
String detectedMimeType = mimeService.getMimetypeFromFilenameAndBlobWithDefault(name, content, “application/octet-stream”);
