Many thanks for the reply Karl...


I discovered the following issue -
extending this might help us resolve the problem.  Would it be a good idea to have this list
in a config file, that way it could be extended easier?

Subject: Re: ManifoldCF SOLR request default Content-Type

Hi Paul,

When there is no content type on a web crawl, the ManifoldCF web connector does not default
anything -- it sets null as the content type.

The Solr output connector also does not default anything; it returns null to SolrJ when SolrJ
requests the content type.  What SolrJ does under those conditions is anyone's guess, but
I suspect that that is where the application/octet content type is getting set.  I'd have
to look at that code to be sure.

Does ManifoldCF default Content-Type to application/octet-stream for file types that it doesn't
know? If so, is there a way to set it to something else? The reason I ask is I've got a load
of kml files that I'm pushing into solr.
