Class SpringVersion

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.springframework.core.SpringVersion

public class SpringVersion
extends java.lang.Object

Class that exposes the Spring version. Fetches the "Implementation-Version" manifest attribute from the jar file.

Note that some ClassLoaders do not expose the package metadata, hence this class might not be able to determine the Spring version in all environments. Consider using a reflection-based check instead: For example, checking for the presence of a specific Spring 2.0 method that you intend to call.
