    Java JDK deployment

    Hi,

    Does anyone here know how to deploy the Java Development Kit, as an MSI ?

    I can do the Runtime no problem, using AD GPOs and an MSI extracted from the .exe file.

    But when I try to do the same thing with the JDK I get an error 1311, cannot find file, the file it has "lost" is "sj160070.cab".

    I have looked inside the .exe, and this file isn't there, I have also renamed the .exe to sj160070.cab in the hopes that this would work, but nope.

    Any ideas ?

    Also, if someone could point me in the general direction I need to be able to install BlueJ (which only comes as an .exe setup file, via AD / GPOs) it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    When you run the install.exe, you should be able to find the MSI and in your local temp folder. Copy the contents of the folder to a network share, and create a Transform file for that MSI. This works for JDK 6.1.

    Yep, tried that.

    It works for JRE (runtime), but it gives me the dodgy error above when I try to do it with the JDK (development kit), unable to find the sj160070.cab file (which I can't find either).

    This is with JDK 1.6 update 7, so I might have a look around for an earlier version..

    Is that 1.6.5 or 1.6.6 ?

    Actually, I gave up, in the end, installed it manually.

    I tried installing the 1.5.16, which is what I could find on the Sun Java site, listed under previous versions, but this didn't work with BlueJ, despite the BlueJ site saying it works with everything since 1.4.


    It's a pain in the arse though, cause I dunno what's going to happen when the next upgrade comes out.
    The problem is, when I look further into it, that the files are no longer extracted into the %temp% folder, when installing, instead they are put into c:\program files\common\java\update\base images\... or at least SOME of them are, some are also located in c:\documents and settings\%username%\application data\sun\java\.
    I have at no point managed to find the fabled sj170060.cab that it was after, although I have got sb170060.cab, jm170060.cab, jp170060.cab and jz170060.cab, so I suspect there was another location with the required file in.


    I will have another play with it, when the 1.6.8 comes out, but I hope this is before a holiday. so I can just update the classroom images.

    Hey Z,

    Do you still have an MSI for the JDK?

    Sorry to bump an old thread.. Do you still have an msi for the Java Development Kit? I don't really fancy installing it manually on a room of computers!

    Thanks
