Use the Package Download Assistant to download the Java Runtime Environment update files. Then use the Publishing Wizard to copy the installation file and update definition to the WSUS server.

The following video illustrates the steps in this procedure:

"Prevent Failed Java Updates," 

To publish the Java Runtime Environment updates:

  1. In the left pane of the Patch Manager console, expand Administration and Reporting > Software Publishing.
  2. Select Sun Packages.
  3. In the center pane, select a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) update that you want to publish.
  4. In the Actions pane (right), click Download Content.
  5. Click OK.
  6. In the Package Download Assistant window, double-click the download link.
  7. Select Accept License Agreement, and then download the following files:
    • Windows x86 Offline
    • Windows x64
  8. Return to the Package Download Assistant window, and then click Import Source.
  9. Browse to the folder that contains the file you want to import, and then click Open. Note: The file you select here must match the update you selected in Step 3. The Package Download Assistant provides the correct filename by default, so you do not need to select the file after you browse to the appropriate folder.
  10. Click OK.
  11. If you want to publish another JRE update, select it back in the Patch Manager console, and then import the file into the Patch Manager server:
    1. In the Actions pane (right), click Download Content.
    2. Click OK.
    3. On the Package Download Assistant window, click Import Source.
    4. Browse to the file you want to import, and then click Open.
    5. Click OK.
    6. Repeat these steps for any other JRE updates for which you want to import files.
  12. To view the files you imported, click Refresh in the Actions pane (right).
  13. Select the JRE update packages you want to publish.
  14. In the Actions pane (right), click Publish Packages.
  15. Click Next.
  16. Click Finish.
