> In "CDSCompressedKPtrs.java" what exactly happens when we throw SkippedException? I assume we have some mechanism now to detect/report skipped tests? I like the idea.
the test will be reported by jtreg as passed w/ a "sub-status" skipped and the exception's message as detail; this substatus is recognized by our test execution system, and all skipped tests are reported separately from passed-passed.
> Also, there are more than these 5 tests that check for platforms the "old way", so there is not going to be a coordinated effort to change them to the new way?
as I explained in another RFR, this cleanup is a spin off from my other work, I didn't plan to convert all cases. I will file RFEs to expand this and other cleanups, I doubt thought that I will be able to work on them, yet I'll be happy to assist whoever decides to work on them.
