ACS 1.1.7.0 - First suitable version for developement and end-user

Estimated reading time: 1 mins

When ACS (IBM i Access Client Solutions) in version 1.1.6.2 introduced additional support to restrict functions using Application Administration. (See also May Dawn’s post) I felt happy to get a real tool to limit the usage of ACS functions for end-user. We do no longer scare :) about end-user being able to find the AcsConfig.properties file and enabling all components by commenting com.ibm.iaccess.ExcludeComps (See GettingStarted Guide).

"ACS Version 1.1.7.0 and Applications Administration restiction message

ACS Version 1.1.7.0 - restrict functions in Application Administration and new Database management features like Schema

But together with the new features like Schema - Database management interface - and some improvements in Run SQL Scripts we were able to provide a real alternative to Windows 10  users which had to use slow IBM Navigator for i web tools so far (to be supported).
