Deploying Java Version 8 Update 45

So i have been racking my brain trying to make sense of Oracle's guides on setting up the deployment.properties files for deploying and managing java settings in an enterprise setting. And I feel like there is a surprising lack of information out there, for what i feel like it something a lot of people do.

So basically i am trying to deploy Java 8u45 to about 2000 workstations, and i am really just looking for some best practices from everyone on the best way to go about this and what kind of good references are out there.

I want to deploy java and suppress as many of the questions java asks when a website wants to load a java app so users don't go blocking things that aren't supposed to be blocked, and don't update java on their own.

Thanks for any help you all can provide!

You haven't looked very far, then. IT Ninja is awash with entries about fully disabling stuff like auto-update, the brain-dead "out of date" message, etc., etc.

Most enterprise deployments use the system-level deployment.properties file rather than going through the (mildly irritating) pain of user-level, which is well documented on Oracle's site, too.
