Abstract:How to identify the build or version of the JAR file you are using
Submitted By:LANSA Technical Support

There are instances where you may need to verify the version of the JAR file used in your JSM.

This may be due to any of the following:

  1. Upon request from Support
  2. When generating errors indicating Methods not found
  3. When trying to establish the differences between a working and not working JSM system, where the systems should be the same version but are giving different behavior

In these situations, looking at the dates and size of the file is not really ideal. The recommended method to verify the version of the JAR file used is to open the jar file using WINZIP and open the file versionJSM.txt.

The contents of the versionJSM.txt file will specify the base version of the JAR file as well any updates that have been applied.
