mime type mapping for NRL


I have NRL files which I uploaded into a directory. NRL file is just a small text file which will be involked by iManage program. The path to an NRL file from my page is as such:


When I click on this link, it display the content in the browser.

I have added the following in web.xml file but does not help.

      <mime-mapping id="MimeMapping_42">
      <mime-mapping id="MimeMapping_41">

How do I in JSP code such that it will open this file with the right program?

Thank you.

You need to set the contentType also known as the MIME type:

response.setContentType( application/msword ); // MIME type for word doc

response.setContentType( application/nrl ); // MIME type for word nrl

This will only work if the browser has the mimetype set correctly ,i.e. is this case MS Word and NRL installe don their computer. You can easily tell if the mime-type is set as else it will ask you "which program do you want to open this with?"
