Our jruby jar has *GPL jars in it; fix
--------------------------------------

                 Key: HBASE-3374
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3374
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: stack
            Priority: Blocker
             Fix For: 0.90.0


The latest JRuby's complete jar bundles *GPL jars (JNA and JFFI among others).   It looks
like the functionality we depend on -- the shell in particular -- makes use of these dirty
jars so they are hard to strip.  They came in because we (I!) just updated our JRuby w/o checking
in on what updates contained.  JRuby has been doing this for a while now (1.1.x added the
first LGPL).  You have to go all the ways back to the original HBase checkin, HBASE-487, of
JRuby -- 1.0.3 -- to get a JRuby w/o *GPL jars.

Plan is to try and revert our JRuby all the ways down to 1.0.3 before shipping 0.90.0.  Thats
what this issue is about.

We should also look into moving off JRuby in the medium to long-term.  Its kinda awkward sticking
on an old version that is no longer supported.  I'll open an issue for that.
