Tests do exist, but they are presently disabled.  The end-to-end tests
were part of JDK-8004729, which was pushed before the M6 deadline for
tl.  However, they fail on SPARC without JDK-8006005, which was pushed
to hsx, but didn't make it over to tl in time for M6.  Additionally,
Peter Jensen is working with me to develop a more comprehensive test
suite.  And lastly, the spec for MethodParameters is not yet finalized.
 Therefore, the end-to-end tests are presently disabled.

There are tests in javac as well, but they are being updated as part of
the langtools patch.
