JDownloader is using the 7zip java binding by boris. It does NOT use any unrar/winrar binary as those are not as easy to use and doesn't provide all required features. Old JDownloader 0.9581 did use unrar directly but this had too many disadvantages like slow password handling, filename with foreign encoding/chars issues, different handling for different languages/versions...issues with older linux kernels with fork vs exec

You can either use the compiled versions here,
or compile yourself from here **External links are only visible to Support Staff****External links are only visible to Support Staff**

The 7zipjavabinding has the great advantage that there is only ONE api to access ALL supported archive formats and it solves all the listed disadvantages from above.

Boris is already working on updated version for latest available release version
