Dedicated JRE for my swing client application

I'm developing av java swing client program that is installed live in about 500 computers. Since the computers aren't owned by my company, we don't have that much control of the environment. This at the same time as we probably should have more control over the java runtime. I wonder what would need to be done to have an own java runtime just for "my application" let's say in a subdirectory of the client.
What I wonder is pros/cons and how I do this?

Pro:
Better control of what is used and I donät need to test things on all java runtime versions to make sure it works. Just the one I want to have.

Con:
Need to keep track of the jre and update it also.

What do I need to do to make the client run using my special JRE?
