           Summary: Set default JVM arguments via configuration files
           Product: IcedTea
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: all
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: IcedTea6
        AssignedTo: unassigned at icedtea.classpath.org
        ReportedBy: shiningarcanine at gmail.com

Currently, people use wrappers to set default JVM options via a JAVA_OPTS
environment variable. That approach is fragile because anything depending on it
will be broken by the system package manager. Package maintainers for each
distribution could solve that problem on their own, but then each distribution
would have its own way of doing this and it seems to me that it would be best
if IcedTea did this.

Ideally, I would like to see IcedTea implement two configuration files for
setting the default options. The first would be a system configuration while
the second would be a user configuration file. The easiest way to do this would
be through a wrapper, but any approach that reads configuration files would be
sufficient to avoid the pitfalls of making users or package maintainers do this
