Quick simple steps how to determine detailed JRE version on your client station or server

Body

 

Hello,

 

My name is Edgar Mengelberg and I have been working with the Maximo and TPAE product suite in various Support roles for over 15 years.

Often customers ask me what the quickest , most accurate way will be in finding the used JRE a.k.a Java Runtime Engine version on their client station or server.

 

Here are some dead-easy to follow steps in order to establish this as follows:


1)Click on your Start( left button corner on your desktop bar) button .

2)Click on the Run... option.

3) Type in CMD and click OK to bring up the DOS prompt.

4) Then type in java -version

N.B!: Make sure you leave a space between java and -version

5) Press "Enter" and voila, this will give you all the JRE info you need.
