Starting with this release of J2EE agents, you can easily check the exact version of the agent you are using, including build date, build number, and client SDK version. Prior to this release, administrators could not easily identify the build date of the agent they were using. Since code changes occur between build dates, identifying the exact build can be useful. For the details on how to check the version of an agent instance, see agentadmin --version.
Benefit - Support for Version Checking: The benefit of this feature is that it allows you to quickly check the version of the J2EE agent you are using, enabling you to determine which features and bug fixes are included.
