    JAVA Administraton and Saftey. I DON'T WANT JAVA!

    I have for years resisted firmly when ever someone asks for JAVA to be installed. I may now be forced to use it. What the best way to deploy and lock down JAVA. Also I never frequently update a program but with JAVA this will be a must. is it GPOs? best to update or delete and install?

    is there an MST to lock it down, blah blah blah. I DON'T WANT JAVA!

    Not sure about an MST.

    We download the offline installer. We then run the installer so that it extracts the MSI in the AppData folder and then copy that to a central shared location. From there we can use SCCM to deploy it to our workstations.

    Yeah that's what I do but I use ORCA to create the .msi which disables the system tray icon as well as never checks for updates.. I have the version 7 update 45 files if you want. This can be installed manually or deployed which won't require you to remove the old version of java installed. Just requires a restart after it is installed. Works great for me.

    Yup, we use Orca to create an MST - that way it'll apply to new versions as they come, rather than modding the MSI each time. Horrible software, but when Java is still the de-facto language taught on many courses, it's not a surprise that stuff is lingering around which needs it.
