Oracle Support Customers must use the installers provided by Oracle to receive support on installation issues.
With the release of Java SE 8u20, Oracle introduced an MSI Enterprise JRE Installer. This is a new MSI compatible installer that enables system administrators to install the JRE across the enterprise without end user interaction. Integrated with the MSI Installer is the Java Uninstall Tool, which provides the option to remove older versions of Java from the system. Now the common features such as rollback of unsuccessful installs, repair of broken installations and installing over existing broken installations are all accessible with the MSI Installer in place.

Although information is available in the public domain explaining steps to extract the .msi file from the installer for deployment through Active Directory based network, this practice is unsupported, installations done using this method might not work correctly, and Oracle can not guarantee that future Java updates will continue to allow extracting the .msi file.
