Driver Version String

The Cloud driver has a version string of the format:
XX.YY.ZZZZ (BAAAA, UBBBB)
where:
XX
is the major version of the driver.
YY
specifies the minor version of the driver.
ZZZZ
is the build number of the driver.
AAAA
is the build number of the driver's bas component.
BBBB
is the build number of the driver's utl component.
For example:

04.02.0012  (B0003, U0004)
      |__|   |___| |___|
     Driver   Bas Utl
On Windows, you can check the version string through the properties of the driver DLL. Right-click the driver DLL and select Properties. The Properties dialog box appears. On the Version tab, click File Version in the Other version information list box.
You can always check the version string of a driver by looking at the About tab of the driver’s Setup dialog.
On UNIX and Linux, you can check the version string by using the test loading tool shipped with the product. This tool, ivtestlib, is located in install_directory/bin.
The syntax for the tool is:

ivtestlib shared_object
or

ddtestlib shared_object
For example, for the 32-bit driver on Oracle Solaris:

ivtestlib ivd2c27.so
returns:

4.02.0012 (B0003, U0004)
