jtreg cannot be run against a pre-built/downloaded JDK anymore?

It is a hotpost testing problem rather than a jtreg problem. So I’ve added hotspot-dev at openjdk.java.net<mailto:hotspot-dev at openjdk.java.net> alias.

Seems that problem is that WhiteBox API used in  testing doesn’t correspond to JDK being tested.

This commit changed WhiteBox.canWriteJavaHeapArchive() method

So  you might see this linkage error if tries to test older version of JDK while tests have these changes.

Could you please check that you use exactly the same sources during testing which have been used to build JDK.

Subject: jtreg cannot be run against a pre-built/downloaded JDK anymore?
In order to reproduce one of the issues I have been looking into, I've
been trying to run a jtreg test case against a Java 17 installation. The
command I use is:

java -jar jtreg.jar -jdk:<path-to-jdk-17-home>

This runs into the following exception:

failed to get value for vm.cds.write.archived.java.heap
java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: 'boolean
     at jdk.test.whitebox.WhiteBox.canWriteJavaHeapArchive(Native Method)
     at requires.VMProps.vmCDSCanWriteArchivedJavaHeap(VMProps.java:413)
     at requires.VMProps$SafeMap.put(VMProps.java:72)
     at requires.VMProps.call(VMProps.java:113)
     at requires.VMProps.call(VMProps.java:60)
Test results: failed: 1

Is this something I am doing wrong or is it some genuine issue? I
haven't been able to run jtreg against a downloaded/installed JDK for
many weeks now. Initially I thought I had somehow messed my local jdk
source repo setup so didn't pay much attention to the failures. But now,
I'm trying this on a completely different clean setup and that too runs
into this issue.

Here's the output of jtreg -version:
