Unless something drives you or your organiztion to have the most recent version of Java at all times, just turn off the updates and do not bother with them except once or twice per year during normal maintenance. ... Thinkpads_User

Found this on the Sun website, and it's a bit complicated but with some time you could make it work well. I was unable to find an easier solution.

This question was closed 4 years ago and circumstances have changed since. Even today non-admin users cannot update Java on their own. But if you have a better answer for 4 years ago, you might look more helpful if you posted it.
