About:Config

About:Config is a simple but powerful configuration utility for JDownloader experts. It allows to view and edit JDownloader's complete configuration database. JDownloaders database is split into so called SubConfigurations. Each SubConfiguration has values and/or sub-containers. Imagine a computer with various harddisks (SubConfigurations). Each Harddisk has files (values) and folders (sub-containers). A Folder(sub-container) might have various files and folders…..

  • SubConfig
    • SubContainer
      • Value
      • SubContainer2
        • value2
        • value3
    • SubContainer3
  • SubConfig2

…. DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING IF YOU ARE NOT ABSOLUTELY 10000% SURE WHAT YOU ARE DOING. PLAYING WITH THIS UTILITY MIGHTY DAMAGE YOUR CONFIGURATION. YOU MIGHT LOOSE ALL SETTINGS AND LINKS.

Start it

Execute JDownloader using the following command line:

java -jar JDownloader.jar -config

Backup

JDownloader creates a database_TIMESTAMP.zip backup of our configuration at each start of the utility in JD_HOME/backup/*. You may extract it in JD_home/configs/ to restore settings.

Use it

Select SubConfiguration

First of all, select a SubConfiguration in the Combobox[1], or create a new one by entering it's name and pressing enter. JDownloader will now list all available key[5]-value[6] pairs and subcontainers.

Create a new entry

Press the ”+” icon[2]. Enter a Keyname. ”/” is the deliminator to create keys in sub-containers. Subcontainers are created automatically as soon as you create the first key in it. Now enter the value. Take care that you use the <class>Value</class> syntax.
example:

key:    myInt
value:  <int>3</int>

Creates a new Integer entry with key myInt and value 3

Edit an entry

Mark it and press the “edit” button [4]. Enter the new value. Respect the Syntax! Some values cannot be changed, since they are used for runtime. The edit and remove-button are disabled.

Remove an entry

Select an entry, and press the ”-” button[3]. Removing a sub-container removes all entries in it. If a subconfiguration if empty, it will be removed.
