OpenJDK default options to always use the server VM

view story

http://askubuntu.com – I got a warning message: jvm uses the client vm, make sure to run java with the server vm for best performance by adding -server to the command line In fact, when i run java -version i get: OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea7 2.3.2) (7u7-2.3.2a-0ubuntu0.12.04.1) OpenJDK Client VM (build 23.2-b09, mixed mode, sharing) How does one go about and change OpenJDK's defaults to always start under the server VM?
