Adding the gsql_client.jar version 3.0 to a repository

I am trying to get our Giraffle loaders working with TigerGraph 3.0. It would help our process if the gsql_client.jar is available in the Maven jcenter repository so we could just use this in our build processes:

On the server:
**GSQL >**  version
GSQL version: 3.0
GSQL commit number: 6adf4e2f7bb9064195a32c1fd993e7bf6dedac6d

On the client Giraffle needs to know what version to look for:
https://optum.github.io/giraffle/#/faq/faq

dependencies {
    gsqlRuntime("com.tigergraph.client:gsql_client:3.0")
}

I also had to add the following to the Docker image .bash_profile to get the right Java path:
alias java=’/home/tigergraph/tigergraph/app/3.0.0/.syspre/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64-1.8.0.171/bin/java’

$ java -jar gsql_client.jar version
GSQL version: 3.0
GSQL commit number: 6adf4e2f7bb9064195a32c1fd993e7bf6dedac6d

Do you have anyone on staff that knows how to have gradle look in a local “libs” dir for the new client?

No urgency now. Josh Meekhof kindly walked me through the work-around. He told me to put the gsql_client.jar in a local ./lib directory and then add the following to the build file:

dependencies {
    gsqlRuntime(files("./lib/gsql_client.jar"))
}

So now we get the right version in all our Giraffle loaders:

$ gradle --console=plain gsqlShell

If there is any relative path, it is relative to <System.AppRoot>/dev/gdk/gsql
Welcome to TigerGraph.

Note that this even works on java version “13.0.2” 2020-01-14.

Let me know if you push the new client to jcenter and I can test it for you.
