Hello, I know that this thread is somewhat old, and marked solved, though in reading through the steps provided, I had some difficulty replicating the fix without external information.

Below I am listing the steps I used to get JDownloader 2 working with a couple different machines on El Capitan:

1. Uninstall Apple Java (Note: You will need the admin password)

In terminal, run:

sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk
sudo rm -rf /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0*.jdk

This will remove the Apple Java installation files.

2. Reinstall JDownloader 2

JDownloader will automatically download and install a compatible version of Java for your system.
(Note: The Uninstaller will not work, and throw an error after Java uninstallation)

3. Run JDownloader 2

4. Reinstall Apple Java 1.6

You can safely reinstall Apple Java after installing and running JDownloader.

After this, you should have JDownloader 2 running properly, as well as the Apple supplied Java installation for any applications that make use of it.
