Migrate debug-views code to base on the up-to-date dojo

                 Key: GERONIMO-4790
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: console
    Affects Versions: 2.2
            Reporter: Rex Wang
             Fix For: 2.2


Currently, our console depends on two different versions of dojo library. One is 1.3.0, which
is used by EJB portlet and just updated from 1.2.1 (GERONIMO-4723) and fixed a bug(GERONIMO-4746).
I hope we can go on updating it to the latest version 1.3.2.

The other one is 0.4.3, the legacy lib, which has not been supported  by dojo team, but used
by our debug-view portlets, I prefer to update it to the latest lib, and the advantage are
as follows:
1. keep consistent in the portlet page style with the EJB portlet
2. reduce a bit to the geronimo footprint size
3. Although we have ported the dojo-legacy to build the source in external(GERONIMO-4750),
with this update, we don't need that as well.
4. will be more easy to maintainance the program logic by using the unified dojo lib.
5. the doc of 1.3.x is good and easy to find.

There are also some risks:
1. There has been so much changes between the dojo versions that the effort might be 1-2 week
to complete.
2. I did not find any documents for the old dojo lib, so it might be easier to re-write the
whole pages to base on 1.3.x and dwr 3.0.x(we have upgrade the dwr successfully in GERONIMO-4753),
but I not sure.

Any thoughts?
