Application Client Container (ACC)

Definition - What does Application Client Container (ACC) mean?

An application client container (ACC) is a set of Java classes, libraries and other files required for application client execution which are bundled with the application client for distribution. The ACC manages the application client’s execution and uses necessary system resources to enable application-client functionality.

Techopedia explains Application Client Container (ACC)

The two main features of ACC are security and naming. ACC ensures security by collecting user authentication data, such as username and password. ACC then sends the collected data to the server through the Java Remote Method Invocation (RMI) interface over the Internet Inter-Orb Protocol (IIOP) (RMI/IIOP). The authentication data is then processed using the Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS) module.

The Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is a good example of an application container. The ACC and the application client run on the client machine. A distinct ACC advantage is its light weight compared to other containers.
