Does anyone know if there is an easy way to determine which version of the Servlet API is being used?

The reason is that I have a context listener which isn't working on a particular server and I'm wondering if it is because it isn't using the Servlet 2.3 API.

Thanks,
James

You might need to check the server documentation.

Check if this can help

James,

Be sure to read the license in case you want to use cos.jar in commercial app.
