Or, for example, when customizing repository connection information one can use the following (this is in the context of a Dockerfile):

CMD java -Xmx2048M -Xms2048M -Dfile.encoding=UTF8 \
       -Dmidpoint.home=$MP_DIR/var \
       -Dmidpoint.repository.database=mariadb \
       -Dmidpoint.repository.jdbcUsername=$REPO_USER \
       -Dmidpoint.repository.jdbcPasswordFile=$REPO_PASSWORD_FILE \
       -Dmidpoint.repository.jdbcUrl=jdbc:mariadb://$REPO_HOST:$REPO_PORT/registry?characterEncoding=utf8 \
       -Dmidpoint.repository.hibernateHbm2ddl=none \
       -Dmidpoint.repository.missingSchemaAction=create \
       -Dmidpoint.repository.initializationFailTimeout=60000 \
       -jar $MP_DIR/lib/midpoint.war
