Version information is included in the Manifest.mf of all JARs. We use
Manifest attributes that are made available by Java for installed optional
packages, like Implementation-Version. This includes versioning, build
number, and product code. It is all automatically done, and if it's an
actual release then there is a label in VSS that maps to this.

JARs also include any shared libs/DLLs. These also get built at the same
time as everything else.

It's not perfect but if a customer reports problems with a JAR we have
enough info to track back to source.
