        Description

        Enhance the VM Option Parsing to allow options to be specified in a file.
        The existing mechanisms in the VM that support options specification
        include the command line, a flags file, and environment variables. The
        flags file only supports Boolean VM options like -XX:+PrintVMOptions;
        the VM Options that take a value or a string are not supported.

        Requests have have been submitted to enhance the existing VM Option
        Parsing to allow a file to be specified that allows all VM Options to
        be specified in a file.
