Java has an MSI and you can customize it. Here is an article on how to deploy it:

So the technical answer is yes, you can extract an MSI from the Java installer and install it. The practical answer is, however, that it is error prone. Oracle likes to change things around every few revisions and the flags that worked three months ago don't work anymore. At scale (more than a dozen machines) GPSI just doesn't work well anymore. Microsoft is not investing in improvements and hasn't since 2003, and some applications, like Office, simply can't be deployed by GPSI.

With 300 machines, I'd recommend a more robust application deployment strategy. Specious Deploy is a good low cost solution. SCCM or Kace are good enterprise solutions. Or if you *really* need to pinch pennies, grab a ninite pro subscription and use it in a startup script for Java. All of them. I guarantee, are better options than pushing out Java via GPSI.
