Efficient way of distributing java application

I have a java application that I can startup using the command
Now I want to be able to distribute this application. I have a few questions for that:
How can I check if Java Runtime Environment is already installed or not? If it is I want to skip step 2. I cannot do this from java for sure because I am not sure if JRE is available or not.
Assuming that the client PC does not have java installed on it, how can I automate the installation of Java Runtime Environment and after that install the java application.
Also is there anyway I can go around without having to type the following to start my app?
