The tests are then run on the bootstrap VM, i.e. the JVM used to build Jikes RVM. You can also configure the build to run unit tests on the newly built Jikes RVM. Note that this may significantly increase the build times of slow configurations (e.g. prototype and protype-opt).

If you are developing new unit tests, it may be helpful to run them on an existing Jikes RVM image. This can be done by using the Ant target unit-tests-on-existing-image. The path for the image is determined by the usual properties of the Ant build.
