        Description

        For Java Web Start application, neither key nor value of a property is allowed to contain characters ‘%’ and ‘"’. Such properties are considered insecure since using either character could result in incorrect command line parsing. See JDK-8136475 for more details.

        Yet this limitation is not documented in JNLP File Syntax documentation at https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/technotes/guides/javaws/developersguide/syntax.html
