    Where are Java Preferences (Applet Runtime Parameters) saved on Mac OS X?


      If you want to modify the Applet Runtime parameters in Mac OS X, you need to use the "Java Preferences" application located under /Applications/Utilities.
      Suppose that I open the "Java Preferences" application, I select a specific JRE version, and I set a runtime parameter of "-Xmx300m" for Applets, in order to increase the max heap size.

      Now, where is this setting saved to?
      Until recent past, these values used to be saved in the <UserHome>/Library/Caches/Java/deployment.properties file.
      But this does not seem to be the case any longer.

      Does anyone knows where are these settings currently saved in Mac OS X? I am currently running Mac OS X v10.5.8 with Java 1.6.0_20 installed.

      Any help / hint would be greatly appreciated.
