    discovery of current cumulative patch level of a Jboss EAP 6 installation

    Paul Anom Newbie

      I like to discover the current cumulative patch level of a Jboss EAP without the need of a running Jboss EAP instance. The idea is to have a software installation discovery for license management and knowing the patch level would be a nice bonus. the version.txt file in $JBOSS_HOME gives the base install version. On a patched 6.4 installation There are 3 locations that reveal something about the cumulative patch level:

      ./.installation/patches/jboss-eap-6.4.10.CP

      ./bundles/system/layers/base/.overlays/layer-base-jboss-eap-6.4.10.CP

      ./modules/system/layers/base/.overlays/layer-base-jboss-eap-6.4.10.CP

       

      there is also a ./.installation/patches/jboss-eap-6.4.10.CP/misc/version.txt. This file seems to show the previous patch level.

       

      On a Jboss EAP 7.0 installation I see the current cumulative patch level is updated in the $JBOSS_HOME/version.txt. So the question is only for EAP 6.

       

      Can I take the highest patch level found in ./.installation/patches as the current cumulative patch level?
