How to distribute Java update through SCCM 2007

Need to setup a package to distibute new java update   jre-6u17-windows-i586-iftw-rv.exe
However, each package I put together doesn't work, I tried jre-6u17-windows-i586-iftw-rv.exe -s at the command line and that didn't work either, what command line do I need to give the program so that this java update will push through SCCM?

Start the installer but don't go through any of the steps.  While it's running, browse to %appdata%\Sun\Java.  Copy the jre1.6.0_17 folder to a network location and push the software using the file under it named jre1.6.0_17.msi.

I have not tested the MSI Solution, however this solution worked for me. Download the java update from java.com. As of this comment the file name is jre-6u18-windows-i586-iftw-rv.exe.

Create a package and use this on the command line

jre-6u18-windows-i586-iftw-rv.exe /s EXPLORER=1

Here is the Collection I advertise to:

select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name,SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS on SMS_G_System_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS.ResourceID = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where SMS_G_System_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS.DisplayName like "Java(TM) 6 Update%" and SMS_G_System_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS.Version < "6.0.180"

I was mistaken about running the java exe. Straight from the download. Shift-3 is correct. Here is a link to the article from Java.com

How do I deploy Java using Active Directory across a network = http://java.com/en/download/help/msi_install.xml

I am not using Group Policy (Active Directory) to deploy the software. I am using SMS so my Collection above still stands.
