-> I wanted a java/servlet function which extracts the mimeType of a file that we are putting for upload

AEM Assets already extracts Mimetype and persist under asset's metadata:

/content/dam/test.jpg/jcr:content/metadata/dam:MIMEtype

In Servlet, you could use the service as I have mentioned[0] to detect mime type from an input stream of the file (sourced by TIKA library).
