I'd like to consolidate a list of System properties that can be set.
I'll start with a number of them myself.
Hopefully, others can chip in and we can have a list of them for reference.
Or, is there already such a list.
Would appreciate any link to it.

Thanks so much for the reply.
How about other properties like
I know there are some for rmi, but I have not read to that part yet, so, I guess I'll consolidate later.
Looking forward to more advice.
