Two jira issues are completed:

The grouper-lib.jar is no longer created from the grouper build.xml.  Bundled jars are bad, and one of ours requires a special manifest or something that when not there causes errors.  If you need to run command line, use the invoker jar (see usdu, loader, gsh for examples)

The foreign keys to grouper_field are now based on field_id.  Note, you still cannot have two different types with the same field name, due to other code limitations in grouper, but the DB can handle it now.  This is the same upgrade path as the uuid/id bug.

·  2008/08/14: v1.4 HEAD: UUID/ID cols reduced, and Field foreign key is now field_id  Start grouper to see in the logs a message that says to run a script, or do an: ant schemaexport.  You should review the script before running it, as sometimes ddlutils does weird things.  Also, in prod you should export your data before running.  Once you are comfortable with the output, set ddlutils.dropBackupUuidCols to true, and ddlutils.dropBackupFieldNameTypeCols to true, then: ant schemaexport, to get the script to drop the backup uuid/id cols.  I would run all db scripts in prod with a DB ide (e.g. toad) or manually so that you can address any issues (see link for example issues)
