Glance to the right side column: "More Like This" and notice the two that address this issue. Someone asked yesterday:

Yes, that was I who asked the same question, but it seemed like it might be buried in with some questions about another issue, so I started a new thread just on this topic. Still having the same problem and Java Preferences doesn't seem to have a control for Shut Down.

I have the same issue since I recently updated both my MacBook 10.6.8 and my Mac Pro 10.7.5. In both cases CrashPlan started up and also this org.jboss.Main (which says it is version 1.0). I junked CrashPlan but org.jboss.Main still starts up everytime and shows up on the dock. I searched for "jboss" and found nothing - and have no idea idea what it is or what it does. Indeed it does, as you describe, stop me shutting down but I found that if I quit org.jboss.Main it goes away for about a second or two and then relaunches. If I quit a second time it stays away a bit longer and there is time to complete the shut down. That's my workaround.
I wish I hadn't updated - this is very annoying. Is Apple losing their grip or is it just me?!

Well...after a lot of poking around I found out that j.boss.Main is part of the jboss suite of Java development programs by Extensis. While I do use Suitcase Fusion by Extensis, I don't do any Java programing. I found a folder named Extensis in my Applications folder that didn't seem to have anything to do with Suitcase, so I trashed it and restarted.
I haven't seen any sign of j.boss.Main since.
