Hi Valerie,

Here is the updated webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~ntv/siba/webrev.00/

Changes applied as per previous comments.
- File names are modified and do not include the term JCE.
- Source folder structure is flat now and all belongs to "java/security/Provider" folder.
- Sign jar functionality removed.

Thanks,
Siba

Hi Siba,

Here are some nits:

I think it's somewhat misleading to use the term JCE here as what you are testing here is just security provider loading. JCE is more about security providers supporting export-controlled services/algorithms.
Since your provider is just an empty one, I don't think u need to sign it (again, it's only for JCE providers).
You can remove a lot of code as a result.
Also, your directory seems a bit deep, e.g. 
modules/src/jceprovidermodule/provider/TestJCEProvider.java vs modules/src/jceclientmodule/provider/TestJCEProvider.java. Can all of these files be under the same directory instead of spreading over several level of subdirectories? The file names are different enough to tell which is which. Other regression tests for provider loading functionality are under test/java/security/Provider. Easier to find this way.

Can you please make the appropriate changes, e.g. don't use the term JCE, get rid of the signing, and simplify the directory structure if possible?

Thanks,
Valerie
