I'll give that a try and see if it works.

Thanks for the reply.

I don't think you would want to run any Java programs with adopt
authority.
That seems like it would be more of a security issue than just giving
the proper authority to the user you are using.

I do think that some kind of authority adoption already happens with
Java on the i. I have not looked into this, but I know there have been
times when I run a Java class from the command line and it ends in
error, I no longer have authority to commands. This is probably
documented, I just haven't had a need to look into it at this point.

If you are updating some work files then populating the production files
with an RPG program, this might work. Try creating a CL that submits the
call to another CL that adopts authority to batch? I'm not sure that
would work as expected, but it's worth a shot.

I have a java program that runs on a windows server. This program
reads data from microsoft Access and updates files on the 400. I have

had this working for sometime, but as part of locking down data, I now

have issues. Currently the data is going to a library that is
secured, with authorization given to a few users via Auth List. My
boss wants to lock it down further so that the profile I use will no
longer have access to this library.
So I thought we could have a driver program in another lib that adopts

QSECOFR and then uploads the file. This doesn't seem to work If I use

the secured lib in my connection profile(java). It doesn't pick up the

adoption(this makes sense to me) So then I thought I could crtdupobj
of the files in QTEMP. However the java program doesn't use the same
QTEMP.

Is there anyway I can use adoption or swap profiles via my java
program?


Any other ideas on how to get around this.

Thanks
