I am using tomcat 5.5. When I use to open the openoffice files (.odp, .odb, 
etc.,) files the files are not opening and just appearing a small ican in the 
top lesthand corner of the Internet Explorer browser.

Please help to fix this issue

This is most likely becuase the open office mime tpyes are not specified in

Firefox will prompt for an application to open these documents, IE looks at the
content, determines it is a zip file and opens it as such.

I have added the mime types to conf/web.xml

This change will be in 5.5.18 and later.
