Unit tests for OpenJDK?

Thanks for your response.

Looks like, without a formal form-submission and form-approval process I
will not be given JCK.

May I ask the members in the community that without free and easy access to
JCK to one and all, how on earth could an applications developer (like
myself) possibly ever finish writing (complete with unit testing!) a custom
file-system based on the FileSystemProvider API which Java itself provides?

If not the full JCK, I think the powers-that-be should provide to all
application developers, freely and easily, at least a subset of the JCK
that covers nontrivial API such as FileSystemProvider!

Wonder, how other developers like myself would handle this situation.
