Interface/enum listing standard mime-type constants
Is there an enum (or something similar) which holds constants for the most common MIME types?
I'd like to deal with some constants rather than firing Strings here and there.
There is not one in the JDK that I am aware of. But there is this class that you can probably start with.
Now there is a better option I think. Using Guava's MediaType is a class that is maintained.
There cannot be an enum, since there is no closed set of possible values.
Several frameworks provide convenient classes that contain list of Strings. For example JAX-RS (jsr311) spec provides a class javax.ws.rs.core.MediaType.
Java stores some MIME types in DataFlavor.
