So, these are unit tests for parts of the classpath jdwp

You do need to add "Tags" comments to the new files.

I think it is fine to do this, even a good thing :-).  However I'd
like Keith to weigh in on his preferred testing approach.

Yes, I definitely think this is a right step. I've spoken to Kyle about it already, but, alas, I didn't know there was a mauve-patches list!

In any case, it has always been my intent to add unit tests for the various generic classes, like events, "exceptions"/errors, filters, and so on. Especially the filters, since those are rather strictly defined. At one time, I actually did have tests for several of these things (including VMIdManager, EventManager, and more), but I think I lost most of that when my hard drive went south last year. Or I misplaced it (in the trash) by mistake. I don't remember any more. :-(

Since we can't really do much more with classpath alone, we would need to do more functional testing from the VM side, and this is where I have to figure out how proceed. Right now I have my own little Itcl testing suite that I use. We'll have to discuss how to either integrate it or implement something similar. [My Itcl app is actually more a debugging tool than testing. It will dump packets and the like, too, for example.]
