Get supported file formats

The getSupportedFileTypes method of the FileType class is used to obtain a list of supported file types.

An example of obtaining a list of supported file types is presented below.

Iterable<FileType> supportedFileTypes = FileType.getSupportedFileTypes();
Iterator iterator = supportedFileTypes.iterator();      
while (iterator.hasNext()) {
    FileType fileType = (FileType);
    System.out.println(fileType.getExtension() + " - " + fileType.getDescription());
