Hi Dennis,

if you have problems with particular regression tests (as I had for some
hotspot tests), you can specify timeout value in the test itself using
the following comment:

@run main/timeout=30 FoundType

The timeout value is specified in seconds in this case.

You can also specify this flag while running jtreg.jar:

Please note that tests containing some form of endless loop have to be
run by othervm.

I hope this helps
