        Description

        To reproduce an intermittent failure with a test, it is often necessary to execute that test multiple times. Currently, people are using helper scripts to accomplish this with jtreg. A feature (similar to Mach5's --test-repeat) should be added that runs a test multiple times and exits on the first failure.

        This RFE was first filed as jtreg feature (see CODETOOLS-7902650). Igor I. suggested "jdk's run-test framework already provides JTREG_RETRY_COUNT to rerun a test target till it passes, so I'd prefer we add JTREG_REPEAT_COUNT ".
