Pushing Java Apps Over Ad


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if there was a way to push a compiled java app (for desktops) over Active Directory 2008 using GPOs to mass install software, is there a way to package the app into a .msi file ? or is there no need to do such a thing ?

Thanks in advance,

For an Active Directory roll out, I believe you need to make it an msi package to script the install, or use a third party installer used for pushing desktop updates, but don't quote me on that.

As Digip stated, you need to make it an msi package to script the install. Once that's done use group police to push out the package at next log on.

These articles should assist you, in the deployment

Thanks for the info guys :) ,the part on how to distribute the *.msi package I know how to tackle, but thanks still for the articles Infiltrator they are very good reference material. Might anyone know how to package a java app into a .msi package though for distribution ?

Thanks again,

Thanks again for the help Infiltrator those articles were quite interesting :) but i have found a sort of work-around for the time being, since this app does need to install as such I will push the files to a specific location on the given computers and then push a shortcut to the desktop :)
