How do I figure out what version of tomcat my xampp is running ?

Here's what I found:

You should be able to find this in the log called 'catalina.out'. Alternatively, you can go right to the source; open $TOMCAT_HOME/server/lib/catalina.jar in a tool capable of handling zip or jar files, and read the file called org/apache/catalina/util/

That last bit is not guaranteed to work across multiple versions, though.

Personal opinion -- the catalina solution should be perfectly fine.

P.S. your (XAMPP) Tomcat home folder usually lies in $XAMPP/tomcat/
