Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-13338) Hbase to use PowerPC supported Jruby version 1.7.20

Jean-Marc Spaggiari commented on HBASE-13338:
---------------------------------------------

Hi Ayappan,

Are you going to provide a patch for that? Testing might be a bit hard since JRuby is mostily
used for the shell and there is no unit test for that.

Also, any improvement on the JRuby side will not really have any impact on the HBase side
since HBase mostly use the Java API even from the JRuby calls. What is the expectation of
this upgrade?

Thanks.

>          Issue Type: Task
>          Components: dependencies, shell
>    Affects Versions: 1.0.0, 0.98.12
>         Environment: PowerPC64, PowerPC64LE
>            Reporter: Ayappan

> Older versions of jffi (till 1.2.7) don't have native PPC64 & PPC64LE libraries.
The latest released 1.2.8 version has PowerPC libraries and the jruby development version(1.7.20--SNAPSHOT)
has been updated to make use of this version. Hbase still uses much older jruby 1.6.8 version
which don't have the native libraries and this affects the Hbase shell in PowerPCs. So Hbase
needs to be updated to make use of the upcoming Jruby release 1.7.20 to support PowerPC.
