      Description

      Harmony launcher doesn't support -javaagent startup option. That option is a part of J2SE5 spec [1], so it probably should be supported.

      The java.lang.instrument package (the option is part of) exists in Harmony classlib, and the question of having the option support has quite a story in discussion [2] [3] [4], but the option is not yet supported. There's even a JIRA issue [5] for this problem for IBM VME.

      This issue affects Geronimo, as it uses that option and provides it's own jpa.jar.
