With such an implementation user will be asked for J9 VM after test run
has been launched (with BTI ERROR). It can be slightly inconvenient.
To make it more usable I suggest to describe additional required parameter
in parameters.xml requiring the location of archived J9.
In this case user will be asked for J9 location on BTI setup stage.

and (if to follow the suggested approach):

${j9.arch.location}: Path to archive with J9 VM downloaded from

(with no value by default, only description. user will specify the
path in required-parameters.properties file)

The J9+CLASSLIB is an execution product of ibm_j9 test suite.
I think it should be placed under ${results.dir}/${suite.name} dir.
