Silent uninstall is not documented for Java 7

        Description

        In the Java 5 documentation, we included steps to perform silent installation
        which are still documented here:

        http://docs.oracle.com/javase/1.5.0/docs/guide/deployment/deployment-guide/silent.html#uninstalling
        Uninstallation in Silent Mode

        Document Location
        =================
        We no longer provide any instruction for silent uninstall of Java 7 and I
        couldn't even find the steps for Java 6.

        The supported method for completing a silent unistall of more recent JREs
        should be documented.

        What is wrong
        =============
        Documentation needs to be added for Java 6, 7, and 8 to explain the process
        on how to silently uninstall the JRE.

        We have a procedure for Java 5, which as best as I understand is still
        supported and does still seem to work. So I'm unclear why we don't continue
        to document the process for our customers.
