Bulletin JAVA7-03 is considered a security patch. If the applicability rules are not met during a Security Patch scan, it will not be displayed as a 'Missing Patch'. If you suspect that our applicability rules are incorrect (e.g. that we are not considering it to be a 'Missing Patch' in a circumstance to which it should apply), we would ask that you contact support directly so that we can obtain a scan log for further analysis.
There are three software distribution items for Java 7 (all with bulletin ID JAVA7-00). If you are scanning for QJava7U00x64, and it is not determined to be installed by the scan, then it will be listed as a 'Missing Patch' within the scan result (and will thus be a deployable update).

Doesnt offer Java 7, 32 bit as a deployment option to 64 bit machines though
Updates of type 'Software Distribution' for 32-bit versions of Java do not currently target any 64-bit operating systems. Our data team is currently reviewing this issue.
I can understand this in most cases.
However with java you really still need the 32bit as people are still using 32bit browsers.
You do support patching of 32bit java on 64 bit once its installed by other means , so surely
there is no reason to not be able to offer it under software deployment also ?
We have added 64-bit operating systems as affected products for the following software distribution items:
