The JDBC spec allows you to get the major/minor version of the server, via DatabaseMetadata.getDatabaseMajorVersion() and DatabaseMetadata.getDatabaseMinorVersion().

If you want anything more detailed than that, you'll have to use 'SHOW ....'.

(Hint, anytime you want some particular information about the versions/capabilities/tables/columns etc. from the database you're connected to, more than likely DatabaseMetadata can get you that information).
