Java SE Runtime Environment 7 enables support for running Java-powered applets and applications. This release includes fully supported JRE for Mac OS X 10.7.3 (Lion) and above. You can download the Mac OS X JDK and JRE from Java SE Downloads page.

If you are running a release of Mac OS X that includes Apple Java 6, for example 10.7.3, 10.7.4, 10.8.0, there is an important difference about the installation of Oracle Java (both JRE and JDK) that you should be aware of.

The Applications -> Utilities -> Java Preferences application is part of Apple's implementation of Java. Once Apple no longer more...

As a remind/summary:

Oracle provides the most recent official Java Internet plug-in release. Meanwhile, Apple provides Java for running non-Internet Java within OS X. They are not the same thing or the same version.

Java continues to be the MOST DANGEROUS SOFTWARE you can run on the Internet. This is specifically because of Oracle's removal of Java's sandboxing as well as Oracle's bad attitude about patching the multitudes of security flaws constantly being discovered in Java.

If you don't have to run Java in the Internet, it is suggested that you DO NOT INSTALL Oracle's Java. Instead, leave Java safely set up as Apple provides it whereby it remains uninstalled for the Internet until such time as you require it.

If you would like to remove Oracle's lousy Java for the Internet and restore your Mac as Apple intended, Apple provides their own Java setup installer. You can read about it and download the current version here:

Thanks again for the quick Apple link. And the version command was "java -version" not "java -v" as I previously tried.

The JRE only installs a plugin to run java applets in the browser. It is not sufficient to run java applications on OS X. If one starts an application written in Java, one gets asked to install JDK from Apple. This is totally messed up. I contacted Apple support regarding this issue. They didn't know about that and also Oracle. It's a shame.

Please read my post above. It points out that Apple provides Java for running applets from within OS X, as opposed to running Java on the Internet. Oracle provides the plug-in for running Java on the Internet. The safest thing to do is to NOT install Oracle's Java plug-in. If you already have but would like to restore your Mac to the state Apple intended, you can run Apple's latest Java setup installer. It removes Oracle's lousy Java plug-in and allows you to install it at the such point as you may require it. Here is the current version:

Color me confused --- I have had Oracle JRE 8x for some time now -- and the check version thing at the Oracle website says I'm fine.

WTH is this 7X??

Java 8 is not available from java.com, which is what this page links to;

"Why is Java 8 not available on java.com?
Java 8 is the latest release for Java that contains new features, enhancements and bug fixes to improve efficiency to develop and run Java programs.

The new release of Java is first made available to developers to ensure no major problems are found before we make it available on the java.com website for end users to download. If you are interested in trying Java 8 it can be downloaded from Oracle.com."

Why? I don't know.

And thanks, I didn't even know there was a version 8!

Oracle is currently supporting two versions of Java. Java 7 (aka v1.7) is the current standard version of Java. Java 8 (aka v1.8) is the current beta, progressive branch. Do NOT run Oracle's Java 8 unless it is required for your work. It's wise to not run Oracle's Java 7 unless you require it as it remains the single most dangerous software you can run on the Internet due to the multitude of security flaws constantly being discovered and Oracle's bad attitude about patching them.

This software scares me. These guys can't even create their websites with the correct Javascript to download the software.

Javascript is NOT Java at all, only the name is similar! Java is one of the most used languages and enviroments, it runs in tons of devices, and completely different OSes, is very portable and very fast. This are the facts, but you are not obligated to use it, if you don't want it.

The Java Pref Pane (what a glorious name for a mere launcher of a config app) is broken on my Maverricks since the 1.7.0_51 update. Auto update cannot be disabled and no JRE are listed.

Funny, this version 40 is not showing up in the auto updater built in… Had to install manually.

Thanks SLK, I am asking for the link to be added to the JRE listing or for macupdate to add a separate listing for the JDK.

This version makes Java apps legible again on Retina displays (they don't look fuzzy or blurry any more)
