Hello all;

JDK-8023491 included a change which attempted to adjust the location that the langtools/test/Makefile used to write test results. This change conflicted with how the test/Makefiles are used by important scripts. This change backs out the langtools testing output location changes which were part of JDK-8023491.


The net effect is that langtools/test/Makefile will return to it's former behaviour and write it's test results to a non-standard location (outside of the build/$(CONF)/testoutput directory) until additional changeset(s) can be prepared to correct this problem.

Sorry for any inconvenience this problem caused. All future changes impacting langtools test execution will include the compiler-dev mailing list.
