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).

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.

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