This is not clear for me: currently there is no hdk suite. Could you
give more info?

It is quite big peace of code. And I'm just trying to understand
whether we really need this functionality. If it is used only to
resolve suites dependencies on classlib and drlvm then I'd substitute
it with something that more simple.

BWT, how the framework resolves cycle dependencies?

My current view that the most of suites just need to know where is JRE
for testing.
Then the framework can do the following
1) if classlib is specified then test.jre.home=${classlib}/deploy/jdk/jre
In this case the framework user should just place VM implementation to
${classlib}/deploy/jdk/jre/bin/default. (for example, it may be IBM
VME). So the framework first rebuild classlib and then runs other

2) if classlib+drlvm are specified then
In this case the framework first rebuild classlib, then drlvm suite
and after that runs other suites.

3) classlib and drlvm are not specified. test.jre.home is specified by
framework user.

Does this work for you?
