Please be aware of these:
-Xbootclasspath:<directories and zip/jar files separated by ;>
set search path for bootstrap classes and resources     

-Xbootclasspath/a:<directories and zip/jar files separated by ;>
append to end of bootstrap class path     

-Xbootclasspath/p:<directories and zip/jar files separated by
prepend in front of bootstrap class path                  

Santé bonheur :)
