Deploy Java Using Configuration Files

You can standardize your Java deployments and enforce settings at the system level by utilizing the following method.

  • Open Notepad or your favorite text editor
  • Add the following lines:
deployment.system.config=file:///C:/Windows/Sun/Java/Deployment/deployment.properties
deployment.system.config.mandatory=true

Save the file and name it: deployment.config

  • Open Notepad again
  • Add the following lines:
deployment.javaws.autodownload=NEVER
deployment.javaws.autodownload.locked
deployment.expiration.check.enabled=FALSE
deployment.expiration.decision=NEVER
deployment.expiration.decision.11.101.2=later
deployment.expiration.decision.suppression.11.101.2=true
deployment.user.security.exception.sites=C\:/Windows/Sun/Java/Deployment/exception.sites

Save the file and name it: deployment.properties

  • Open Notepad again
  • Add the following lines:
INSTALL_SILENT=Enable
AUTO_UPDATE=Disable
WEB_ANALYTICS=Disable
EULA=Disable
REBOOT=Disable
SPONSORS=Disable

Save the file and name it: java.settings.cfg

If you need to allow access to specific Java enabled sites that would normally be blocked by security checks, then you should create a fourth configuration file as referenced below.

  • Open Notepad or your favorite text editor
  • Add the following lines using your specific site names and port numbers:
https://SERVER01.YOURDOMAIN.COM:8888
http://SERVER02.YOURDOMAIN.COM:8888

Save the file and name it: exception.sites

  1. Create a C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java directory (if not present)
  2. Copy the java.settings.cfg to C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\
  3. Follow the “How to Install Java 13.0.1 Silently” steps mentioned earlier in the article
  4. Create a C:\Windows\Sun\Java\Deployment directory (if not present)
  5. Copy the deployment.config, deployment.properties, and exception.sites (if required) to C:\Windows\Sun\Java\Deployment\
