Java class versions

Hi everyone,

I have a customer who has several 3rd party classes (old RSA libraries) loaded into their Oracle database.

Question: is there a way of identifying what version these classes in the database are? Note: source not visible through SQL*developer

Or is the only way to look at the META-INF\MANIFEST.MF file of the original jar files?

Many thanks

Alan

    I think this question is more related to the Oracle RDBMS  Space than Java space

    The ONLY way to identify the 'version' of anything is if the developer/creator provides 'version' as part of what they produce.

    There may, or may not, be any version info in the jars or classes or source code that was loaded.

    That is a question to ask the party that produced the code.

    You access/use Java classes/jars the same way whether they are inside or outside the DB.
