    Description

      The indication of values in column 'Default Value' is inconsistent and misleading.
      The double-quotes enclosing the values need to be removed from the values listed in the column 'Default Value'.

      1. Documentation affected
      -------------------------
      This report refers to the following two documentation pages:

      (1)
      http://docs.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/technotes/guides/deployment/deployment-guide/properties.html
      Deployment Configuration File and Properties

      (2)
      http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/deployment/deployment-guide/properties.html
      Deployment Configuration File and Properties


      2. Examples
      -----------
      The following shows that the values in column 'Default Value' are given
      inconsistently:

      (1) Here are examples, where the value is given correctly:

      Property Key Type Default Value Description
      deployment.security.mixcode String ENABLE [...]
      deployment.proxy.type int 3 for PROX_TYPE_BROWSER [...]

      (2) Here are examples, where the value is given incorrectly:

      Property Key Type Default Value Description
      deployment.console.startup.mode String "HIDE" [...]
      deployment.javaws.shortcut String "ASK_IF_HINTED" [...]
      deployment.javaws.autodownload String "ALWAYS" [...]


      3. Verification
      ---------------
      The incorrect values can be verified easily:
      the settings have no effect if enclosed with double-quotes.

      Here is an example:
      the following setting does not work, and does not hide the Java Deployment console window:

      deployment.console.startup.mode="HIDE"

      This can be easily verified by using the following two lines in the file 'deployment.properties':

      deployment.console.startup.mode=SHOW
      deployment.console.startup.mode="HIDE"

      The effect is that the Java Deployment console window is shown.
