Difference between Portable and Jar-Only

Post by xadox » 30 Mar 2012, 06:51

Since I am still new to FileBot I am a little bit confused. Actually I am only using the FileBot_2.6.jar. I thought this would already be portable.
But today I also realise that there is a spezial portable version, too.

Is there realy a difference between them?

The jar is the pure java core. Same for all platforms. Deployment packages just pre-define runtime settings. E.g. in portable FileBot.exe / filebot.sh set things up to make it save all data to the working dir.

Just running FileBot.jar is not really portable in the purest sense since it'll default to saving data to your home folder and registry.
