According to the Oracle jar documentation, jar can pass JVM options with a -J option after the files list. However, when I try this, jar seems to interpret it as a file in the list and returns no such file or directory.

Also, jar usage does not show the option:

I am running

Is this option no longer available?

When I tried to specify using -j option, it gave me an error. Try like below and let us know if this is the way to use it..

-J option is given at the last...
