Maven Publishing: manually set the artifact name

I am using the Maven Publishing plugin and I need to set the final file name of an artifact (a native JNI library actually). I need it to be named but the Maven Publishing plugin renames it to The Linux dynamic linker cannot load this.

Is there a way to manually set the final name of a Maven artifact?
If not, is there a way to prevent prepending of project-version- to the artifact name?

I cannot figure a way to do this by setting pom.projectIdentity.artifactId.

This hack has been reported to work in a related setting but I haven’t tried it myself. I would prefer a non-hack solution.

In case other Gradle users run into the same problem, I currently resort to another approach: include the shared libraries into a JAR file so their names are preserved, and load them using NativeUtils.
