RFR(M): JDK-8028160: [TESTBUG] Exclude failing (runtime) jtreg tests using @ignore

Hi David,

The known failure is not really part of this, since this will only hide the failures when running in Aurora and not when running locally.

In Hotspot we don't have a ProblemList.txt and after some discussion we decided to not use it but rather use @ignore since you won't need to specify an exclude list when running the jtreg tests, keeping it as simple as possible.

I don't understand the reason for doing this. If the tests fail because of a genuine problem then there should be a bug for that problem and the test just becomes a "known failure". If that is undesirable why not just add them to the ProblemList.txt file?

It seems wrong to me to have any tests marked as @ignore.
