The test test/sun/misc/Version/VersionCheck.java needs to be deleted in both jdk7
and 6u5 as it is not correct anymore after the fix for new HSX versionning:
  6590301: HotSpot VM should have own version separate from JDK version

This is a relevant email thread below:

java.lang.RuntimeException: Mismatched jvmMajorVersion = 11 jdkMajorVersion = 1

I don't see a CR for it.

Some questions were raised earlier.
The VersionCheck.java was added as a sanity test for the fix for 6272688 which defines a new private interface between SDK and VM to pass version information.  This test is intended to catch regression introduced to this private interface.  A side effect of this test can make sure that a VM of a correct version of VM is dropped to the JDK but it's not the main purpose of the test.

Since the HS version is now changed, we need to think of a different way to verify if the jvm_version_info interface is correct, if possible.  Similarly for the SDK side.  As Jim mentioned, we can't have regression tests failing.  Please delete the test and you can add a new regression test later when you determine a way to verify it.


EVALUATION Integrated into 6u4 b04

SUGGESTED FIX Please, refer to the Evaluation.

EVALUATION This is a sanity test which became incorrect after HSX versionning fix was putback. The test needs to be deleted from set of the SDK workspace regression tests.
