    NW 7.3 ABAP does not need Java (with small exception of VMC - Virtual Machine Containers - that are having everything delivered inside SAP kernel).

    Regarding SAP GUI - you do not need to have it on server if you can connect to the server from your notebook.

    SAP GUI in general does not need Java (except specific components) - see SAP Front End Installation Guide for more details:
