IRIS Drivers with maven

Once again I would like to know, if there are any plans to make Java libraries available through normal channels like public mvnrepository, like the whole world it's doing, where anyone can find any JDBC driver to any database in the world but InterSystems.

Currently there is only some useless garbage. There are just very empty files. What was the point of posting it there?

I'm really interested in contributing, but this issue is a huge stopper, and I don't want to do anything.

@Bob Kuszewski @Jeff Fried and whoever can answer on this 

I would like to see a public response, with a real timeline, for when it will be available because it makes no sense at all.

And it's not only about Java, it includes all the official External Languages support, it's not support at all if it's not installable expected way.

Oracle publishes drivers there, and also with much newer than jdk8 version support
MSSQL fresh drivers available for anyone with no conditions as well

Once again, can we wrote a wrapper class for JDBC driver, eg : com.intersystems.dc.jdbc.IRISJDBCDriver, and use it to connect to IRIS?

The wrapper can be a public repository, and published to maven central, so that it can be used by anyone.

Like that no conflict with the official driver, and we can use it in any project.

Downside is that the name is not the same, so we need to change the driver name in the code, but it's a small price to pay.
