Build target release runs unit tests from test jar package with icu4j.jar. In ICU4J 65, a new LocaleDistance/LocakeMatcher unit test depends on classes under icu4j/tools directory. The regular test target check was updated to include the extra classes, but we obviously forgot releaseJarCheck case.
When you run release target - releaseVer, there are 2 unit test case failures reported as below.
Reminder to please close this ticket if work is done.
Fixed in 65
