You have added a comment behind a config option, e.g.

com.openexchange.capability.mycapability=true # Turn on awesome capability

within a .properties file but the value doesn't work like expected.

Root Cause

Backend just utilizes "java.util.Properties" class to read .properties files and assumes its author obeyed the Properties File Format , see:


Appending comments after property values would break nearly every non-string property. Hence having a working properties file comments must not be added after config option on the same line.
