I don't think the JCK is exactly what you are looking for. In other to
properly test a custom file system provider then the test suite needs to
know about its URI scheme and syntax, file path syntax, at least
something about its capabilities and features, and often other details
related to configuration and setup. If your file system provider
replaces or interposes on the default provider then the tests in the jdk
repository will exercise it. If your file system provider is very
different then I think you will need to write tests, this is why we
created separate tests for the zip provider for example. As I suggested
in previous, there might be an opportunity to hook up with others that
are developing their own file system implementations and maybe something
could come of this that would be useful to others.
