-Xinternalversion displays more detailed JVM version information than the -version option




To check all the related data to version use


java -Xinternalversion


will produce output similar to:


OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (13.0.2+8) for windows-amd64 JRE (13.0.2+8), built on Jan 17 2020 10:38:43 by "" with MS VC++ 15.8 (VS2017)




The –Xinternalversion allows to get advanced version information compared to standard java virtual machine argument “-version".
