I really don't have any need for Java in any shape or form.
I don't need it in the web browser either.
I understand that it comes already installed but I would prefer to uninstall it.

What would be the best way ?
Search for java in the package manager and mark everything found for removal, then proceed with removal ?

I'm not that familiar with Linux in general so forgive me for asking this, but is there anything in the default installation of openSuse that requires Java ?

Can I safely remove it and not affect OS in any way ?

I'm using 12.2 KDE version, default apps installed apart from XBMC and Clementine.
