This is a simple patch to replace the default MIME Types (e.g.
"application/pdf") in the DSpace 1.5.x XMLUI with File Format Descriptions
Although in past versions of DSpace these file format descriptions were
resolved via the Bitstream Registry, access to this registry is constrained
by the capabilities of METS. Therefore, this patch instead uses a mapping
in your 'messages.xml' to resolve these file format descriptions. For
If the above "mapping" exists in your messages.xml, this would map the MIME
Type "application/pdf" to the description "PDF". If such a mapping doesn't
exist in your messages.xml, then the MIME Type is displayed by default
(making these changes backwards compatible with current XMLUI).
Two patches are attached (made against latest version of SVN 1.5.x
