I assume they are but they have not been present until the recent changes (looks like the sjavac change). Their presence confuses the test, a minor oversight in the test that is fixed now. The issue is of course nothing to do with the jimage code. If you look at a build from a few days ago then the META-INF/jvmci.providers aren't in the exploded build, pull in the sjavac change and they are in the exploded build. Maybe the changes to the exclude/include patterns causes this but needs digging into.

The @ServiceProvider mechanism will be moved from the JVMCI to the JVMCI compiler to make the JVMCI simpler:


It’s a pending change that hasn’t reached hs-comp yet but should in the next weeks.  Do whatever you need to do to make the tests work.
