You can retrieve this information via the qbs API. In fact, Creator's code model does exactly that. If you are writing a Qt Creator plugin, then the most sensible option is probably to get that information from the code model. That way, your plugin will work independently of the build system. (I do not know whether the code model currently exports the information, but if it does not, that can probably be changed if you present a good use case.)
