You may also want to look at Groovy, Tapestry, Zest, Usergrid or Geode. I can see that a couple
do have the jar in git but IMO would be best to avoid if possible.

Seem like the best approach to me.

the github repo, the wrapper is already present.

Legal probably yes, allowed perhaps yes/perhaps no but best avoided IMO.
