What versions of Java does IBM i Access Client Solutions (ACS) Support?

ACS, java

IBM i ACS – the replacement for Client Access runs on any Java newer than Java 8.

It’s really that simple!

I was asked what versions of Java ACS works with a few days ago, and after googling around (or duck duck go-ing in my case) I found some slightly vague answers.

According to the IBM Java Options Support Page:

IBM i Access Client Solutions (IBM i ACS) 1.1.8.0 released in June 2018, IBM i ACS is supported on Java 8 or higher. It is always suggested using the current update of a Long Term Support (LTS) version of Java. IBM recommends running with a current update of Java 11.

But over on the Java Options for IBM i Access Client Solutions page it says:

IBM i Access Client Solutions (IBM i ACS) 1.1.8.0 released in June 2018, IBM i ACS is supported on Java 8 or higher.  It is always suggested using the current update of a Long Term Support (LTS) version of Java.  IBM recommends running with a current update of Java 11.


Support Java 17 and 21?

The current version of Access Client Solutions V1.1.9.5 does support Java Semeru LTS 17 & 21 (I know because I run these versions on two of my personal laptops).
