You could define your own groups in TEST.groups and only run the valid 
subsets. But identifying the subsets are the problems. The tests 
historically have been written assuming you always have a full JDK under 
test with all available VM facilities. Those assumptions are not valid 
when you consider even a JRE, and now compact profile JREs, let alone an 
environment where you only have the interpreter.
