In most of the repos, there's a top-level directory named "test", which
contains the regression/unit tests for a whole bunch of stuff.
However, IIRC, the JCK itself still isn't available to non-licensees,
and we have a significant number of tests which are non-free (they're
owned by someone else and we can't give them away), that we haven't had
time to audit them for free-ness, or are very licensee-specific (and
contain confidential info). The first and second categories obviously
are never going to be made publicly available. The second category is
slowly getting smaller, as people eventually look at the stuff and move
it over into the free sections, but honestly, it's a very low priority.
Frankly, we're still trying to get around to doing a full test audit to
see if we actually need to even run everything we're doing right now
(and, if we should start adding some other stuff for better coverage).
Other than the full JCK suite, what is in the "test" directories should
suffice for the vast majority of folks - they're fairly comprehensive,
and cover a lot of ground. If they're not good enough, well, might I
direct you over here to the licensee-section of the company....
