Get ENC Chart Issue/Publish date in ArcGIS Java SDK

I have added support for ENC Charts in my ArcGIS Java desktop application. Now there's a requirement where I need to validate if the chart that is loaded is updated or not. I suppose the updated charts should be the ones with an issue date that is the most recent. So I wanted to know if there is a way in the SDK to get the issue or publish dates for the chart that is just loaded. I've seen there is a method to get the readme text for an ENC Exchange set but I'm not sure how to make use of it since different chart providers may have different readme texts. Also if there is a way, then will it also work if I load a single .000 base ENC Cell. 

Also any suggestions to account for the given scenario would be appreciated.

ENC is safety critical data and if there is an update we will automatically show the latest data.  We don't have any specific API to show the details of the update information, but I can only assure you that the API will display the latest chart.
