I found this code on the net, but this is for a adm file, but we recently installed server2008 , so it uses admx files, so how can I "convert" this code or how can I create a new admx file with this code in it ?
CLASS MACHINE

CATEGORY !!Java

        POLICY !!Checkforupdatesatstart
 KEYNAME "SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy"
            EXPLAIN !!Checkforupdatesatstart_Help
                VALUENAME "EnableAutoUpdateCheck"
                    VALUEON NUMERIC 1
                    VALUEOFF NUMERIC 0
        END POLICY

The ADMX Migrator tool will allow you to do this. It's a pretty good tool for converting ADM to ADMX as well as building custom ADMX files.  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyId=0F1EEC3D-10C4-4B5F-9625-97C2F731090C&displaylang=en

I found it too in the meantime, but I'll grant you the points
Also, for ADMX files you just need to copy them into the %systemroot%\PolicyDefinitions folder to be added.
