Embedded MariaDB4j unable to load openssl lib 1.0.0 (Mac OS Catalina)

On my Mac (Mac OS Catalina 10.15.3), after a `brew update & brew upgrade` the openssl lib was updated from 1.0 to 1.1.

Sadly, the embedded MariaDB(j) I‘m using for Java Application UnitTests seems currently not to be compatible with opelssl 1.1.

Caused by: ch.vorburger.exec.ManagedProcessException: Program [/.../MariaDB4j/base/bin/mysql_install_db, ...) failed, exitValue=1, last 100 lines of console:

My (temporary) solution was to switch openssl back to lastest 1.0:
$ brew switch openssl 1.0.2t
Cleaning /usr/local/Cellar/openssl/1.0.2t
Opt link created for /usr/local/Cellar/openssl/1.0.2t
