Pushing Java Updates Through GPO

I'm a fan of keeping things easy and not over-complicating work. Therefore this post satisfies twice.

I prefer to, where-ever possible, push out software to the network computers by Group Policy. I have slowly been transferring all of our software to be Group Policy 'enabled' - it makes life a little easier and gives me more time at my desk to catch up on other tickets. There are some software vendors that prefer to ship their software as executables - which although easy to install, add an extra hurdle to deploying remotely, as you first have to extract the Microsoft Software Installer part.

Im not going to re-write such an excellent post by Ivan over at Ivans Blog. Here, Ivan, walks you through the entire process of obtaining the msi file and pushing it out through Group Policy.
