Can you please tell, in Eclipse IDE "Edit launch configuration properties" wizard , what is the purpose of program arguments & VM arguments.

When you run a Java program from the command line, you can add arguments to tell the JVM to act a particular way or to pass information to your application. (That's how the args parameter in your static void main(String[] args) method gets filled.) For example:

The -ea and -DDEBUG_LOW are VM arguments. The arg1, arg2, arg3 are program arguments.

So when you run the program from Eclipse, that screen allows you to enter your VM and application arguments.
I agree. Here's the link:
