This article describes how to use the CTP Launcher program to edit the configuration file. The intended audience for this article is system administrators.

The Launcher program is the standard way to start and stop CTP when CTP is not running as a service. It displays a window containing a tabbed pane with these tabs:

  • General: Tables for setting important parameters, plus Start and Stop buttons and a button to launch a browser and access the CTP home page.
  • Version: A table displaying the key version information for CTP, its main libraries, plus Java and the ImageIO Tools.
  • System: A table displaying all the Java system properties.
  • Configuration: A GUI for editing the CTP configuration file.
  • Console: A live pane displaying the system and error output streams.
  • Log: A static psne displaying the CTP log file, with a button to refresh the display manually.

This article describes the Configuration pane. After starting the Launcher program, click the Configuration tab. In the left pane, a tree will display showing the structure of the configuration file. Clicking on any node in the tree will display all the allowed attributes and child elements of the selected node, with text fields for changing the values.


also provides a GUI for accessing the log as CTP runs and for displaying messages sent to the console output stream by the program.
