With the introduction of JavaFX and the new Java Browser Plugin is there now a standard way to download the correct Java version to the Client no matter what Browser or OS they are using.

In the past I had huge difficulty deploying Applets.

If the Applet required a specific JRE version differant methods were suggested to download and install that JRE on the client:
OBJECT tags
APPLET tags
JavaScript
VBScript

I tried all these techniques with varying degrees of success.
In my experience none of them worked accross all Browsers and OS's.

What standard method is now used to download the correct JRE?

Embedding a JavaFX applet into a web page will cause the required runtime files to download automatically. There's also support for WebStart.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
