I sometimes need to set a custom JVM Property for one or more Application Servers and dislike the tedium of setting them one-at-a-time through the console.

Here’s a Jython script for wsadmin to add a JVM Custom Property to a specified Application Server, or to “all” application servers. It will also replace an existing property with a new value and description.


wsadmin -f addJvmProperty.py [nodeName:]<ser​verName>|all <propertyName> <propertyValue> [propertyDescription]


wsadmin -f addJvmProperty.py all myProperty myValue
wsadmin -f addJvmProperty.py myNode:myServer myProperty myValue "My property description"
wsadmin -f addJvmProperty.py myServer myProperty myValue
