Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-13338) Hbase to use PowerPC supported Jruby version 1.7.20
Date Thu, 26 Mar 2015 17:04:53 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-13338?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14382233#comment-14382233

Sean Busbey commented on HBASE-13338:
-------------------------------------

Upgrading this won't be just a simple pom change. JRuby 1.7 changes the default Ruby version
from 1.8 to 1.9, which is *very* incompatible. You should be able to tell JRuby to still run
in Ruby 1.8 mode ([ref|https://github.com/jruby/jruby/wiki/FAQs#does-jruby-support-ruby-19x-features]).
Please make sure to do this.

I really want to update or Ruby version because Ruby 1.8 is super old, has be EOL by several
Ruby communities, and finally starting to die off. I've been waiting for the release of JRuby
9000  to update us off of Ruby 1.8 (release 9.0.0.0 pre-1 just finally landed in january).
It updates things to be Ruby 2.2 (and only 2.2 IIRC).

> 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.
