[QF-Test] How to SET an environment variable in QF-Test procedure that is visible to the SUT?

Hallo,

We have an RCP Client that reads some environment variables on startup
(using System.getProperty()).
When running the client outside of QF-Test and setting the variables as
JVM options, everything works fine.

When testing it with QF-Test, we'd also need to set some of these
variables before starting the client.
We tried setting them using

rc.setProperty('env',<property name>, <property value>)

in a QF-Test server script before starting the SUT client.

However, when the client reads these properties then, they are always
unset (i.e. their value is null).  :(

So what is the correct way to achieve that in QF-Test?

Best,
  MP
