Sometimes it is necessary to check which is the version of the CA Datacom JDBC driver (cadcjdbc.jar) that is intalled on a client box. This task can be accomplished by writing a Java application, but the quickest way is reading the Manifest file using WINZIP (on Windows) or unzip command (Linux).


Release: 15.0
Component: DBSRV 


On a Windows box: 

1 - Open cadcjdbc.jar using WINZIP

2 - Double click on the META-INF directory

3 - Right click on MANIFEST.MF file and choose “View File with Internal Viewer” 

4 - On the file, you can read the release and the version of the JDBC driver ( in this case) 

On Linux box, the following command can be used: 

unzip -p cadcjdbc.jar META-INF/MANIFEST.MF

     which returns the version ( in this case) and the list of applied solutions:

Manifest-Version: 1.0

Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.7.1
