The Advanced Management Console (AMC) 2.17 release is now available!

AMC 2.17 offers system administrators greater and easier control in managing Java version compatibility and security updates for desktops within their enterprise and for ISVs with Java-based applications and solutions.


Key Benefits

Key benefits of using AMC include:

  • Usage Tracking: The Advanced Management Console collects information about which Java applications are launched by which Java versions, creating an application compatibility inventory. Usage Tracking can be configured automatically through the Windows Agent, or by using the configuration properties on other platforms.

  • Taking Action: The Deployment Rule Set capabilities enable different Applet and Web Start applications to use different versions of Java installed on clients. This benefits organizations that must use older versions of Java or need many different Java versions for different reasons.
  • MSI Customizations: System Administrators can use the Java Install Customizer tool to repackage MSIs, controlling the way that Java is installed on managed systems.


Important Changes

The important changes in AMC 2.17 release include:

  • Jersey and Jackson libraries used in Advanced Management Console Agent have been upgraded to versions 2.30 and 2.10.1 respectively.
  • AMC reports for Desktops and Java Usage could only be exported as HTML and CSV. This release adds additional support for export in JSON format.
  • Added support for reset of admin passwords. This will be useful in case of forgotten passwords.
