Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-16196) Update jruby to a newer version.
Date Tue, 23 May 2017 20:38:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-16196?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16021793#comment-16021793

Mike Drob commented on HBASE-16196:
-----------------------------------

Downstream folks - Ruby 1.8 to Ruby 2.x is a large enough change that I'd be nervous springing
it on somebody in a minor release. At least, I wouldn't want to do it without additional guarantees
like HBASE-13583, but I think that one also gets easier to implement after we pick up a modern
JRuby version since there were known bugs in an older jrubyc. Kind of a chicken and egg situation,
where I think we want to get some burn in on new branches before taking it back to stable.

> Ruby 1.8.7 is no longer maintained.
> The TTY library in the old jruby is bad. The newer one is less bad.
> Since this is only a dependency on the hbase-shell module and not on hbase-client or
hbase-server this should be a pretty simple thing that doesn't have any backwards compat issues.
