To add a system proxy for accessing resources, or to increase the Java Virtual Memory, you can edit the Java Runtime configuration of App Launchpad.

To edit the runtime environment, you edit the /opt/vmware/alp/ALPJavaEnvironments file.
Caution: Edit the runtime configuration cautiously, as incorrect values can lead to a failure to start App Launchpad services.


  1. Open an SSH connection to the App Launchpad machine.
  2. Using a text editor, open the /opt/vmware/alp/ALPJavaEnvironments file.
  3. To create a system proxy, append the following parameters and save the file.
  4. Restart App Launchpad services by running the systemctl restart alp command.
  5. Verify that the runtime environment is successfully updated by running the ps -elf | grep java command.
    The system returns the following command history, which includes your parameters:
    -Dhttp.proxyHost=… -jar /opt/vmware/alp/alp.jar --logging.path=log
