Loading SVG from Portal Application EAR?

Hello there,

we are trying to use SVG images in a portal application.

Unfortunately, I can't get any browser to render them.

I've build a small HTML file, which includes an SVG and a PNG images as well, for comparison.

If I upload these files to a normal web server, like apache, the SVG image gets properly rendered, whereas if loaded from Enterprise Portal, the SVG image is not rendered.

If I compare the requests to the SVG image, the main difference I notice, is the missing response header

Enterprise Portal:

Content-Type: content/unknown


Content-Type: image/svg+xml

Can someone help me to get SVG images properly loaded by the browser?

(I am using Enterprise Portal 7.31)


I was able to get the issue more precise:

If retrieved from KM, the SVG image loads correctly, since I added the mime type in Portal's System Administration -> Knowledge Management -> Utilities -> Mime Types.

But if loaded directly from my Portal Application, mime type is not set and rendering fails.

Is there a way to specify mime types for resources contained in an EAR?

Thanks in advance,

    hi sascha,

    check out this link Managing MIME Types - Administration - SAP Library ; i think you have to add you're MIME type there. give it a try and let me know.

    Did you ever find a solution for this?
