I need Java 2 Platform Standard Edition 5.0 to test few things but I don�t want to install it. I need admin right on my windows machine to install from the executable, which I don�t have right now. Does anyone knows if I can download it as zip file from somewhere.
Thanks for your help.

I've done this before successfully for 1.4.2. This is how I did it.

Install the JDK on machine A.
Zip up everything on machine A under the C:\j2sdk1.4.2_06 folder (which is where the JDK installed to).
Extract this zip file on machine B (where you don't want to run an installer). This will give you a folder structure that is the same as on machine A under C:\j2sdk1.4.2_06.
Set the environment variable JAVA_HOME to "C:\j2sdk1.4.2_06"
Append the following to the PATH environment variable "C:\j2sdk1.4.2_06\bin"

Test it out by opening a DOS prompt and typing java -version
