As you might have noted, Jon has recently pushed  the initial version
of the IntelliJ jtreg plugin that Chris and I have been working hard to
put together. This plugin allows you to run jtreg tests without leaving
the IDE. As tests are executed, a green/red progress bar is displayed
(similar to standard junit test support). Test output (jtr files) can
also be recovered within the IDE. There are a number of options that can
be configured when running tests - some global, some test-specific -
this should allow you to fine tune jtreg execution to reproduce the
combination of settings that you use today.
In addition to test execution, this plugin also allows you to debug
tests, which is a feature I find very handy for complex tests.
Finally, this plugin interacts with the way in which IntelliJ discovers
sources in your project - so with the plugin enabled, IntelliJ can
'understand' the sourcepath of a test, which will eliminate all the red
squiggly lines from your tests.
For a more detailed documentation of the plugin functionalities, as well
as to how to build and install the plugin, please refer to this document
