Hotspot now uses a separate version number from the overall JRE. It is useful to include both version tags in the crash error message and hs_err log.
The full hs_err log does include the library version in one place, e.g.:
"vm_info: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (11.0-b11) for windows-x86 JRE (1.6.0_10-b199)..."
(It's at the bottom of the file.)
However the error message printed to the screen, as well as the header of the hs_err, don't include the libraries version, e.g.:
# EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) at pc=0x08abac20, pid=1008, tid=2504
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (10.0-b19 mixed mode windows-x86)
# Problematic frame:
# v ~BufferBlob::vtable chunks
We should consider adding the JRE version in at least these 2 places.
