Do you mean from within the database while connected?
In sqlplus I use
select '&_O_RELEASE' Release, USER Username, global_name -- , 'and _CONNECT_IDENTIFIER' CONNECT_STRING from global_name;
I forget which version you need to be able to use &_CONNECT_IDENTIFIER.
Global name does not depend on sqlplus, but the & vars do (and can also be easily viewed by just typing DEF with no parameters in sqlplus.
Also look at SYS_CONTEXT('USERENV',xx), it has some things that are useful, in this case you might be interested in DB_DOMAIN DB_NAME DB_UNIQUE_NAME HOST, and maybe others.
