Is there any means by which i can get the JRE version using some code? I want an alert in my application that will pop up only after checking the JRE version. So, for that i need to first check what version of JRE exists on the client machine on which the application will run.

In Java, you have the following method in the System Class

public static String getProperty(String key)

where key has to be "java.version" for your requirement.

However, I don't know the equivalent in Javascript.
