Regarding the new bootstrap.jar, I see on the wiki it does not support vm args. But will the client respect the settings like servoy.maxClientHeap and servoy.vmClientArgs settings in the application server?

no it will not.

All those settings that the admin page are already not working for the bootstrapper in jnlp mode (you really need to add/configure that yourself in the bootstrap.jnlp)

But with the standalone installer this is not used at all. java is just started by the OS with the short cut java -jar bootstrap.jar

We don't control that at all.
So the only way to really be able to do that, if i somehow relaunch itself with the right vm settings
We can always look if we really need that in the future.

But the default memory settings are quite ok i think in default java for example if i run this on my system:

java -XX:+PrintFlagsFinal -version | findstr HeapSize

i get a 4GB heap as max as default.
