OWS does not need any pre installed java.
Thus you should be able to remove all javas from your machine and still use OWS

when you clean all previously installed Java runtimes, OWS itself (and OWS Settings) is still running (as it comes with its own internal JVM). But whenever you want to launch a JNLP application via OWS, you need to install at least one JVM that meets the needs of your JNLP application. Otherwise OWS does tell you that it does not find a suitable JVM to launch your app. The internal JVM is not visible resp. cannot used to launch the JNLP app. Use the OWS Seetings JVM Manager to choose and install a suitable JVM.
