    Default Update provider for Java

    Dear Users,

    First off all I want to start that this is my first topic and I'm not sure If I'm here at the right place.
    So my bad if I'm posting this topic at the wrong place.

    I want to know if its possible to make a standard Windows Server 2008 for updating Java and then spread it to our client over the network.
    Same like I'm doing for our anti-virus.
    Since I don't want that the clients are all going to connect to the internet separately for updating.

    I'm aware that this is possible with GPO but then I need to download the update my self but I want to automatic this process.

    Kind regards,
    Martijn

    Well the runtime has a "silent install" so with the right tooling and scripts this is surely possible. If you have the know-how to do it of course. But I know of no Oracle provided solution to do this specifically for Java.

    Dear Gimbal2,

    Thank you for your reply.

    Do you mean that we need to build a script that automatic download Java updates from the website.
    Then after this the file will be place in a folder were the GPO is looking at for newer version and then offcourse deploys it to the clients.

    Or am I misunderstanding you?

    Kind regards,
    Martijn

    Well from a deployment server you have internally - that server 2008 you were talking about. How you then make sure the silent installation of the runtime is invoked I can't tell you, that's a system management issue.
