+1!  Patrick, please send future review request to core-libs-dev.

It's a great effort from the SQE team and Patrick migrating all of the 
jaxp tests into the OpenJDK repo. Thanks again!

Yes.  This is the first set of jaxp tests to be migrated. To help 
understand jaxp test, here is what it looks like:
JAXP tests -
            - 1. JAXP Unit tests
                - a. those named after bug id
                - b. javax.xml.datatype
                - c. javax.xml.parsers
                - d. javax.xml.stream
                - e. javax.xml.transform
                - f. javax.xml.validation
                - g. javax.xml.xpath
                - h. org.w3c.dom
                - i. org.w3c.saxtest

            - 2. JAXP SQE (function) tests
                - a. product tests
                - b. ASTRO xsltc tests
                - c. Auction Portal tests
                - d. GAP tests
                - e. XSLT tests

1a were some of the oldest unit tests that were put in packages by their 
bug ids. Newer tests were named after their corresponding API package names.

Patrick's plan is to migrate 1 (unit tests) in 4 batches. The 1st (this 
one) covers 1a.

It would have been nice if they had comments. But adding comments would 
be too much work, unnecessary I would think. These tests serve their 
purpose, that is, preventing regressions. In case any fails, its bugid 
would allow us to easily find out what it was testing.

It's UTF-16 encoded. Patrick and I looked at it earlier. Mercurial has 
no problem handling binary. Would you think it'd cause any problem?  If 
it's really unwanted, we can look into modifying the test.

I think that'd be jdk_jaxp. Patrick, you've run JPRT, correct?
