I wasn't aware about such capability. Sounds interesting.

Since we are short on time integrating tests for JEP210 into 9 and 8u40, 
I'd suggest to remove dependency on WB API from the tests for now and 
file a followup bug to restore it once a suitable solution is found. As 
I understand, only WB.fullGC() is needed. It can be replaced with 
System.gc() call.

Best regards,
Vladimir Ivanov
