Thanks for looking at this.

The reason that these tests are not using TestHelper it uses (the "jar" tool) and this is not in any of the runtime 
profiles. It also uses javax.compiler and this is only proposed for 
compact3 (even then it is only functional if tools.jar is copied in). At 
one point I looked into doing refactoring but decided it would be better 
to re-examine once the changes are in jdk8/tl. I hope that is okay with you.
