[drlvm][jedit] DRLVM doesn't support -ms and -mx options

                 Key: HARMONY-4618
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-4618
             Project: Harmony
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: App-Oriented Bug Reports, DRLVM
            Reporter: Vasily Zakharov
            Priority: Minor

RI supports options -ms (equivalent to -Xms) and -mx (equivalent to -Xmx) though they're not
documented or listed in help.

However these options are used by some applications, for example by jEdit launcher script
for Linux.

DRLVM doesn't support these options, and because of this jEdit launcher doesn't work:

$ jedit
Unknown option -mx32m
Use java -help to get help on command line options

This problem is easily workarounded, as jEdit launcher is very simple and its jar can be easily
launched manually, however this situation may confuse users.

As a compact reproducer, the trivial test may be used:

public class Test {
    public static void main(String[] args) {

$ java -ms16M -mx32M Test

Output on RI:


Output on DRLVM:

Unknown option -ms16M
Use java -help to get help on command line options
