Class SpringBootVersion



  • public final class SpringBootVersion
    extends Object
    Class that exposes the Spring Boot 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 Boot version in all environments. Consider using a reflection-based check instead: For example, checking for the presence of a specific Spring Boot method that you intend to call.
