    Description

      Summary

      Add -version option to keytool and jarsigner tools.

      Problem

      It would be useful to display the JDK version by a -version option for keytool and jarsigner tools. Many other JDK tools already provide a -version option.

      Solution

      Provide -version option in keytool and jarsigner that is used to print the program version of these tools.
