How to find the JRE version in the JIRA installer?

How can I find out which version of Java is bundled with the Linux installer for JIRA? And let's assume that I don't have access to a Linux server to test it on. I tried grep, I tried unpacking it manually

Hi Matt,

             Please go through the release document under jre folder. I am also attaching the screenshot along with the path.

File Location

Assuming JIRA Install Directory is under /opt/atlassian/jira
Execute the following command
cd /opt/atlassian/jira/jre
cat release




Please vote if this helps.

You had to run the installer to get that jre I think? I'm trying to find the JRE version without running the installer, just from the downloaded package

I created a suggestion at to add the JRE version information to the existing README.txt file in the JIRA server tar.gz package
