other words, you can't claim compatibility on Java7 unless you've tested on Java7. If we test
on Java7 and pass, we can claim we're a compatible implementation in that mode; if we don't
test on Java5 then we can't claim compatibility on Java5 but that does not stop us being compatible
on Java7. I read it as being sufficient if we document what we require as a resource.

The newer TCK does not have some of the scripts that were in the older one so I think the
instructions on running it may have changed. The release notes say the User Guide is packaged
separately from the TCK download. Mark, please could you check for any other updates related
to this TCK.
