Thumbs up.

FYI - jdeps follows the langtools convention to define a static int 
run(String... args) method that doesn't exit but instead returns the 
error exit code (whereas the main method will exit with an error code) 
so that the test can test the tool with different options in the same VM 
and avoid launching another VM.  In any case, I agree these 2 tests are 
not as useful.
