    Java deployment - Transform file for MSI - Network Settings/Proxy Server

    Hi guys/girls

    Im abit stuck with creating a transform for Java Update 23/24. I want to add some network settings - a proxy server address and port as the way our network has been setup, java cant use the default browser settings as its setup just to Automatically detect settings.

    When I manually set the proxy server details in the Java control panel, it works fine, but I want to set this as the MSI is deployed rather than doing the manual change on every machine.

    Any help/pointers would be appreciated!

    Cheers

    Hi

    You should be able to use a the java deployment.properties file. You can configure the proxy settings in here and use a logon script to copy the file to the users area and put a copy on the netlogon/sysvol share.

    You may also be able to do this on a per machine level.

    To set Java's proxy server on a per-machine level, there are two files you need to deploy to each computer (deployment.config and deployment.properties). Both files should be copied to "%SystemRoot%\Sun\Java\Deployment". The deployment.config files contains the path to the deployment.properties file, while deployment.properties contains your proxy server configuration (among other things).

    deployment.config
    Code:
    deployment.system.config=file\:C\:/WINDOWS/Sun/Java/Deployment/deployment.properties
    deployment.system.config.mandatory=false
    deployment.properties
    Code:
    deployment.proxy.type=1
    deployment.proxy.same=true
    deployment.proxy.http.host=192.168.0.2
    deployment.proxy.http.port=8080
    If you want to create an MST to deploy the config files there are 14 rows you need to add to various tables within the MSI. I have documented these in the attached spreadsheet/screenshot or you can download the MST I use myself to save a bit of time. The two config files mentioned above should be located alongside the Java MSI & MST but in a sub-folder which matches the destination path (Windows\Sun\Java\Deployment). All you need to do is edit the deployment.properties file to configure your proxy server.
