      Description

      We still have "jvm" in one of our command line arguments (and correspondingly, a key in the properties file).

        --add-launcher <file path>
                Path to a Properties file that contains list of key, value pairs
                (absolute path or relative to the current directory)
                The keys "name" (required), "module", "add-modules",
                "main-jar", "main-class", "arguments", "jvm-args",
      ...
        --jvm-args <java vm arguments>
                Java arguments to pass to the virtual machine


      These would be more accurately stated as "Java" options rather than jvm arguments. Can we get this changed? Something like:

      --java-options <java options>
                 Options to pass to the Java runtime

      Additionally, there is a "[JVMOptions]" section in the .cfg file that should be changed to "[JavaOptions]".
