        Description

        Customers use Java Web Start for large applications for a while already.
         Support for garbage collection algorithms is restricted to the Serial
         Collector and the ConcurrentLowPause Collector (CMS).

         There was a limited set of GC options available in the list of supported
         java-vm-args of the j2se element:
         http://download.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/technotes/guides/javaws/developersguide/syntax.html#jnlp

         This list was recently considerably enhanced:

         CR# 6953324 (RFE)
         Please add more options to the list of secure jnlp properties
         Implemented in Java SE 6 Update 23

         Unfortunately, support for prominent garbage collection algorithms
         was not regarded in CR# 6953324.

         This request is to increase the list of supported options again with the
         following ones:

        -XX:[+,-]UseParallelOldGC
        -XX:[+,-]UseParallelOldGCCompacting

        -XX:[+,-]UseParallelGC
        -XX:GCTimeLimit
        -XX:GCHeapFreeLimit
        -XX:[+,-]UseGCTimeLimit
        -XX:[+,-]UseGCOverheadLimit
        -XX:[+,-]ScavengeBeforeFullGC

        -XX:[+,-]UseParallelScavenge
