Recently a convenience for parsing commandline options and arguments was checked in. 

This is used among other things for parsing strings sent to diagnostic commands.

However, there hasn't been any extensive set of testing checked in, which is bad.
Recently, a framework for doing transparent vm testing from java was checked in by SQE, and I believe this would make a good fit to use for testing parsing.

Since important feature are using this testing framework, not having a testing suite, or even a good way of doing the testing, us unacceptable.
Although improtant to get tests this depend on white box testing API which is targetet for HS24

OK to defer / DEV (Palm)
OK to defer /SQE (Auno & Gerdin)
