Deploy Java 8 and up with Group Policy

Does Anyone push out Java 8 with Group Policy. I have a school who needs to access a site that uses Check Point Software which that needs java to check if you antivirus is updated and your java is updated. I managed to setup a GPO that pushes java and the deployment.conf, deployment.properties, exclusions.sites file to the clients but i noticed on the 64bit machines it only pushes java 32 bit.

Java 64bit is a different MSI and therefore must be deployed as a separate package. With that said, the 32bit version is usually sufficient for most deployments. IE10 and 11 will dynamically decide to run 32-bit versions of themselves if the web page requests a 32-but add-on such as Java.  Other browsers handle plugins in their own fashion. I'd only deploy Java 64bit if the vendor specifically needs it for memory-intensive applications.

deployment.config
deployment.system.config=file\:%windir%\Sun\Java\Deployment\deployment.properties
deployment.system.config.mandatory=true

deployment.properties
#deployment.properties
deployment.user.security.exception.sites=c\:/Windows/Sun/Java/Deployment/exception.sites
deployment.security.level=HIGH
deployment.security.level.locked
deployment.security.askgrantdialog.notinca=true
deployment.security.askgrantdialog.notinca.locked
deployment.security.notinca.warning=true
deployment.security.notinca.warning.locked
deployment.webjava.enabled=true
deployment.insecure.jres=ALWAYS
deployment.security.revocation.check=NO_CHECK

i deployed java 7 build 71 and changed from this

deployment.config
deployment.system.config=file\:%windir%\Sun\Java\Deployment\deployment.properties
deployment.system.config.mandatory=true

to this

deployment.config
deployment.system.config=file\://c\:/windows/sun/java/deployment/deployment.properties
deployment.system.config.mandatory=true
