Java developers use maven to resolve your project dependencies (like zpm, npm), so when a package to use IRIS is not available, these java developers give up. All intersystems competitors are there.

While we are building a maven distribution channel the latest IRIS JDBC driver could be downloaded from here

Good idea.  We're working on better processes for client distribution overall.

@Bob Kuszewski, what do you mean by better processes? What does it mean for jdbc driver or any other jar files, which have only one place where they supposed to be published is, maven central. Currently, InterSystems - JDBC and InterSystems XEP just contain empty files, which have to be deleted.

JAR files here, just only 155 bytes in size or even less.

https://repo1.maven.org/maven2/com/intersystems/intersystems-jdbc/3.0.0/

https://repo1.maven.org/maven2/com/intersystems/intersystems-jdbc/2018.1...

https://repo1.maven.org/maven2/com/intersystems/intersystems-xep/2018.1....

All java devs use maven to build your apps. It is critical to increase iris adoption in the Java ecosystem. And it is really simple to ISC. It is just upload most recent files to maven central.

Hi Bob!

Any update on this issue?

We need to write many tests using different databases and only with Iris/Caché we need to download JARs manually to put them in the project lib. Ex:

       <!-- Iris dependence -->
        <dependency>
          <groupId>com.intersystems</groupId>
          <artifactId>intersystems-jdbc</artifactId>
          <version>3.2.0</version>
          <scope>system</scope>
          <systemPath>${project.basedir}/lib/intersystems-jdbc-3.2.0.jar</systemPath>
        </dependency>

       <!-- Postgres dependency -->
        <dependency>
          <groupId>org.postgresql</groupId>
          <artifactId>postgresql</artifactId>
          <version>42.2.20</version>
        </dependency>

The Maven central repository is a common standard on Java (and many other JVM languages) projects. Please, we urgently need this feature available.

The most interesting, is why current files on maven central us completely useless? Just empty jar files.

No good Java Developer uses Maven Central. 80% of needed artifacts are missing, even your own created artifacts. Good Java Developers use there local enterprise repo and keep there project lib clean. Put com.intersystems dependencies into this und you will be satisfied until the need an newer version.
