To configure Tomcat to serve XML files directly, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Locate the Tomcat server installation directory on your machine.
  2. Navigate to the conf directory within the Tomcat installation directory.
  3. Open the web.xml file located in the conf directory in a text editor.
  4. Search for the following lines in the web.xml file:
1
2
3
4
    xml
    text/xml


  1. Make sure that the above lines are uncommented (not surrounded by ) and are not inside a commented-out section.
  2. Save the web.xml file and exit the text editor.
  3. Restart your Tomcat server for the changes to take effect.


Now, Tomcat will serve XML files directly with the text/xml MIME type.
