Hi Mikhail,

LOL ! That's a brilliant catch - hopefully there are not too many test 
cases like those in the rest of the zip  :-)

You could try taking a look at 
tests.api.java.nio.charset.MalformedInputExceptionTest in the nio_char 
tests for a better example of using the SerializationTester methods. 
Even better is something like 
tests.api.java.beans.PropertyChangeEventTest in the unit tests submitted 
in HARMONY-88. Sorry for having to point at yet another different JIRA 

Best regards,
