Does my server need Java installed

I have 40 servers that have java installed.  My network guy keyed in on the fact that support for java is ending sometime soon.  I have no idea if these servers actually use java that have it installed.  Is there a way to tell if a server is actually using java or if an app or service installed on that server is using java.
Thank you

the servers will be a mix of the following versions
2008
2012
2016
JavaWindows OS

Difficult to say. One thing that springs to mind is to periodically execute tasklist in a script

This is simply not true. Support for Java will never end, unless everybody stop using it (so Java will not be needed anymore).

The correctness of the accepted answer depends on two (that spring to mind) things:

a. every server does exactly the same thing with Java
b. you don't really care what happens if you break Java (which is strange if you don't know what it's doing)
