Getting the extension is easy.


MIME type is a bit more complex. The only place I've seen it used is in the JavaBeans Activation Framework which, given a data source, will use the MIME type to find applications which can handle that data. It's used in the JavaMail framework.
 
Oh, sure, you could do that. Or you could eat some pie. While reading this tiny ad:
