Starting with Java Update 40, Oracle allows you to disable the pop-up box that prompts users in-browser that their Java is out of date.
"Option to disable the "JRE out of date" warning Starting from 7u40, a new deployment property deployment.expiration.check.enabled is available. This property can be used to disable the "JRE out of date" warning. When the installed JRE (7u10 or later), falls below the security baseline or passes it's built-in expiration date, an additional warning is shown to users to update their installed JRE to the latest version. For businesses that manage the update process centrally, users attempting to update their JRE individually, may cause problems. To suppress this specific warning message, add the following entry in the deployment properties file: Code: deployment.expiration.check.enabled=false"I use ORCA to create a .mst file to deploy with the .MSI file via Group policy
I change the following properties:
- Autoupdatecheck = 0
- IEXPLORER = 1
- JAVAUPDATE = 0
- JU = 0
- MOZILLA = 1
- WEB_JAVA_SECURITY_LEVEL = M (add a new property & Value)
Should I add another property called "Deployment_Expiration_check_enabled" = False ? I'd rather not have to create another group policy to change the registry key of "deployment.expiration.check.enabled=false"
What is the best practice?
