Does Websphere provide a Java API for retrieving the Websphere product version?

In a perfect world, I�d have a static method that looks like this:

public String getWebsphereProductVersion();


The method would return values such as
"4.0.7"
"5.0.2"
"5.1.1"
"6.0.2.2"

I need a solution for Websphere 4.x, Websphere 5.x, and Websphere 6.x

Thanks in advance.

Look into the versionInfo.sh script thats placed in the <WebSphre_root>/bin directory and that should throw some light on to your issue (content of the script here below -)

###################################################################
binDir=`dirname $0`
. $binDir/setupCmdLine.sh

"$JAVA_HOME/bin/java" \
-Dwas.install.root="$WAS_HOME" \
-Dws.ext.dirs="$WAS_EXT_DIRS" \
-classpath "$WAS_CLASSPATH" com.ibm.ws.bootstrap.WSLauncher \
com.ibm.websphere.product.VersionInfo "$@"

This information is available using JMX programming. I would download MBeanInspector to see all the available MBeans in WAS:
