Required Solaris Studio version for jdk9 ?

the current common/doc/ [1] file mentions Studio 12 Update
4 with several patches as the minimal build requirement for jdk9 on
Solaris. Is this information still up to date and do you plan to use
the mentioned versions for the Java 9 GA build?

Does somebody know how I can find out the exact patch levels of the
installed Studio compiler/backend versions if I'm using a version of
Studio which isn't installed locally but on a network share? I tried
"-V -verbose=version" but it only shows:

$ CC -V -verbose=version
CC: Sun C++ 5.13 SunOS_sparc 2014/10/20

I've also tried the 'version' tool with the same result:

$ version cc
cc: Sun C 5.13 SunOS_sparc 2014/10/20

The version tool recommends using pkginfo/pkg to get the exact version
of the installed studio components, but this obviously doesn't work
for a network installation.

Thank you and best regards,
