Description
With the HotSpot Express bits (for 6u3), java -server -version shows tiered VM. I think this feature will remain disabled with JDK6 (hence 6u3) and so it should indicate server VM as the case is (not tiered).

                                    

Comments
EVALUATION

The version string should be set according to the flag TieredCompilation.

SUGGESTED FIX

Webrev:                 http://prt-web.sfbay.sun.com/net/prt-archiver.sfbay/data/archived_workspaces/main/c2_baseline/2007/20070702105725.kvn.6575876/workspace/webrevs/webrev-2007.07.02/index.html

Use "Server" instead of "Tiered" in the VM version string
since it is our new C2.
