API(or Utility) to display to native DLL and jdbc driver version of DB2 z/OS

Can IBM provide Utility or API to determine the native DLL and jdbc version of JDBC drivers?
websphere application server z/OS is able to throw error in case of any mismatch between native DLL and jdbc driver versions?. why can't this can be externalized through API or Mainframe JOB to display both versions?
error message from websphere logs:-
[jcc][50053][12310][4.23.50] T2zOS exception: [jcc][T2zos] T2zosConfiguration.checkCompatibility: Java driver and native DLL are incompatible, reason: Java driver version [4.23.50], native DLL version [4.24.95] ERRORCODE=-4228, SQLSTATE=null at at
