There are several failures in the openjdk test run. It's likely that most of the failures are related to problems in GNU Classpath. We should consider investigating the failures before making the move to OpenJDK.
In particular, we should investigate all failures of tests for java.lang.Class because Jikes RVM provides this class via libraryInterface/Common for all the class libaries it uses.
When we have OpenJDK working well enough to run normal programs, we will be able to determine if any of the other failures are caused by bugs in Jikes RVM.
