Many shops have a CLIST called IPLINFO that will give you the JES version. If I remember correctly, QMF will show you the DB2 version. I'm sure there are other ways to identify both.

has anyone noticed that there is not any longer the JES/HASP versioning scheme
and NOW the jes version is ... guess what... the zOS version ( since zOS appearance )

time for people to start reading the manuals

SYSJES
name and level of the JES installed on your system:
A character string indicating name of the JES plus its version, release and modification level, for example

JES2 OS 2.10


where JES2 is the JES name and OS 2.10 is the JES level. These two strings are separated by a blank character. If either the JES name or the level returns an empty character string, then no blank character is inserted. Trailing blanks are removed.
-INACTIVE- (please note the delimiters) if the subsystem is not active.
-DOWNLEVEL- (please note the delimiters) if the subsystem is neither JES2 SP4.3 or later, nor JES3 SP5.1.1 or later.


here are two snippets that display what information is available by asking :geek:
