Yes, I believe so. You must put it somewhere that it does not impact on 
other tests, since all tests below that directory hierarchy will be 
impacted by it.

Create a directory structure somewhere in the regression library 
appropriate to your changes, say javax/xml/jaxp/boottest/. Create 
javax/xml/jaxp/boottest/TEST.properties. Then put your test at 
javax/xml/jaxp/boottest/xxx/yyy/zzz/Test.java ( where xxx.yyy.zzz is 
your package name ).
