You also need to consider how you are going to count your license requirements, especially around the Processor metric; e.g. your approach to the VMware policy is a good example.
You are right to consider bundled Oracle Java installations ; though not always easy to identify strictly when Oracle Java is included in your Oracle product license or to determine 100% that any such Oracle Java installation is used purely to support that Oracle 'parent' product.
In our experience (and we've done a lot of these reviews now), tooling is a small part of a complex review which you need to perform: you will need to rely on a lot of declarative information as well.

JP2launcher.exeWith that I am finding over 3,900 end user systems and a core factor just under 700 accross the organization using a product called CrowdStrike that is intended for security and monitoring. ServiceNow is limited in its ability to find running processes, and BigFix is clunky. While not easy CrowdStrike allows one to run a report on software, including the last time that software utilizaed. This has proven to be the best option for us to ID our Java installs without paying Oracle for the pleasure.
