Default Values of JRockit's VM Options

Updated (09/19/2014):

You can also add -XX:+UnlockInternalVMOptions to the command line to access JVM internal flags.

To find out what the JRockit's default VM options are, you type:
  •  jdk-jr/bin/java -XX >JR_defaults.txt
Note that -XX is an alias for -Xprintflags in JRockit.
