Java Packaging for Mac

What changed with Java 8u65 is that Oracle changed its installer from .pkg to .app

Why you should not waste time taking snapshots of Java because you already have the deployable package stuffed insde the Java installer.app. When you open the dmg, you would see the following. This is .app and you can install it by double click, but you would not do if you are packaging for mass deployment. 

So here is what you can do to get the retro Java installer in .pkg format so that you can deploy it right away in the entire enterprise:

  1. Right click and select 'Show Package Contents'
  2. Navigate to this path 'Content > Resources > and look for JavaAppletPlugin.pkg
  3. This can be used to deploy in your organization and it is ready to be used.
