Ad-Hoc Java System Properties

You've always been able to add ad-hoc Java system properties for a server in your server.json via jvm.args in the format of -Dfoo=bar. There is also a top-level struct that is more readable which does the same thing:

  "jvm" : {
    "properties" : {
       "foo" : "bar baz",
       "java.awt.headless" : "true"

No additional quoting or escaping is needed for spaces or special characters when using this method.

Set these programmatically like so:

server set

Or set them globally for all servers in your config setting server defaults.

config set

Keys will be merged, giving precedence to the server.json values.
