SCCM Reporting - Find Java Install Versions

I’m new to SCCM and I’d like to run a report that will show all computers lacking Java 6 update 20.

To be of use to me, I would basically need step by step details as I am not familiar enough with SCCM to general info or advise.  Thanks.

Do you really need a Report or is a Query sufficient for you? Making a Report requires SQL skills while a Query is WQL-based and much easier. I assume you need only a Query.

1. Make a Query A where you get System.Name of the devices which have a inventoried file java.exe in the folder C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin and Softwarefile.Version is the required.
2. Make a second Query B where you make a 'System.Name - Not In' subselected Query A.

In short, the first query selects all devices having the required java.exe version and the second uses the first one to rule out the devices from the list which already have the required version.

Okay, I've answered my own question using a SQL querry.  This is pretty cool if anyone wants to repurpose this for something else.  

This querry will only return computers that have Java installed but the version is not 6.20 while also listing the version of Java while excluding servers (so we know which computers to address).  Enjoy:

select Name0 'Computer Name', User_Name0 'User Name',
  p.DisplayName0 'Java Version',r.ResourceID
   from V_R_System r inner join v_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS p
   on r.ResourceID = p.ResourceID
   (p.DisplayName0 like 'Java%'
    and p.DisplayName0 not like 'Java%Development%'
    and p.DisplayName0 not like 'Java%Updater%'
      and p.DisplayName0 not like 'Java%6%20%'
    and Operating_System_Name_and0 not like '%Server%'
