I assume, we're talking Windows here? With Linux you can download
Java as ZIP-file, so you can put it whereever you like.
You can install the JDK instead of the JRE. The installer of
the JDK also allows you to install the JRE but you can deselect
it. The JDK is not added to the PATH-variable automatically,
so it shouldn't be "visible" to other programs, except if they
do a scan of the whole file-system.
