Question: I was considering an installation of java application on a new computer without the JVM installed, and wondered if a "silent" (in background, without questions) install of the JVM is possible...

Answer: Yes, it possible.

Java 2 Platform Runtime Environment 1.3 installations are built using the InstallShield 5.1 and InstallShield PackageForTheWeb products. These products contain built-in support for silent or unattended installations.

A normal (non-silent) installation receives the necessary input from the user in the form of responses to dialog boxes. However, a silent installation does not prompt the user for input and must get its user input from a different source. That source is the InstallShield Silent Response File (.iss file). A response file contains information similar to that which an end user would enter as responses to dialog boxes when running a normal setup.
InstallShield reads the necessary input from the response file at run time while performing a silent installation.
