The recent updates to jdk9/dev will require the version of jtreg tagged 
as "jtreg4.2-b02".
This has the same dependency requirements as the previous build, and all 
versions of jtreg4.1,
meaning, if you could build it before, you should be able to build 
jtreg4.2-b02 the same way.

Going forward, the next update to jtreg will require the following:
     * built with JDK 7 or later
     * TestNG 6.9.5 or later
     * JUnit 4.10 or later
     * JTHarness 4.6 or later

These updates will enable a number of bug fixes and enhancements that 
have been blocked until now.

Those folk that build jtreg may need to update their build scripts or 
build environment.

Patches to make these changes are now in the jtreg repository.
