Can jtreg run a TestNG test suite?

Sorry, jtreg does not provide that level of TestNG integration.

jtreg can either run individual TestNG tests that are interspersed 
amongst other jtreg tests, or it can run all the classes in a nominated 
directory as TestNG tests.

If you want to do complex setup and cleanup such as you describe, you'll 
have to do it yourself, within the context of the test.
