With the last release support for jRuby was added to Pig. I've started
using this now for some work I'm doing but there are a few details missing
that are hard to pull out of the pig code.
I can't see anywhere we are specifying the version of Ruby that the
embedded jRuby engine is using? In jRuby 1.6 it will default down to 1.8
which I think might be happening.
It might be useful to add a parameter so we can specify which version of
ruby to be using if not?
Also are there any plans to support jRuby 1.7 as this has quite a large
performance improvement, especially with Java 7. jRuby 1.7 defaults to Ruby
1.9 which is also another change.
Any thoughts from others using this would be great?
