It seems like a lot of plugins require Java be installed on the workstation. Is there a way to ensure that Java is loaded on a client PC without requiring user interaction? I'd like to be able to determine this through a script that launches when the first window opens and I would like to do this in the background without any user interaction at all. I'm dealing with Vista, Win 7 and Win 8 machines only, no Macs.
My guess is that it's currently not possible but I'd like to be wrong.
