Our application is deployed in websphere and uses lots of custom jvm properties.
Right now we are adding the properties one by one through admin console.
This is a pain during development phase.
Because every day after syncing their code, each and every developer needs to find out if a new property has been added/renamed and do those changes in their own console. Else the application wont start.
It also takes a lot of application setup time, while deploying to various testing environments.
Could you help me identify the place where websphere stores these custom properties? We are thinking of writing a code to update that file (?) directly instead of adding one by one through admin console.
P.S:- We are not allowed to use jython in our local :(
In the server.xml configuration for that given server, located somewhere like
You can inspect the

Or, you can modify the "genericJvmArguments" tag in the same file, using a format more like
Finally, if you do have jacl scripting access, there is an article on updating using scripting here.
