Any Intel-based computer running OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) or later.
Note that installing the JDK on OS X is performed on a system wide basis, for all users, and administrator privileges are required. You cannot install Java for a single user.
Installing the JDK also installs the JRE. The one exception is that the system will not replace the current JRE with a lower version. To install a lower version of the JRE, first uninstall the current version as described in 'Uninstalling the JRE'.

Determining the Default Version of the JDK
If you have not yet installed Apple's Java OS X 2012-006 update, then you are still using a version of Apple Java 6 that includes the plug-in and the Java Preferences app. See 'Note for Users of OS X that Include Apple Java 6 Plug-in'.
There can be multiple JDKs installed on a system, as many as you wish.
When launching a Java application through the command line, the system uses the default JDK. It is possible for the version of the JRE to be different than the version of the JDK.
You can determine which version of the JDK is the default by typing
java -version in a Terminal window. If the installed version is 8u6, you will see a string that includes the text 1.8.0_06. For example:
To run a different version of Java, either specify the full path, or use the
For more information, see the java_home(1) man page.
Uninstalling the JDK
To uninstall the JDK, you must have Administrator privileges and execute the remove command either as root or by using the sudo(8) tool.
For example, to uninstall 8u6:
Do not attempt to uninstall Java by removing the Java tools from
/usr/bin. This directory is part of the system software and any changes will be reset by Apple the next time you perform an update of the OS.

Update: Please see our Java Support in Safari 12 article for the latest information on Java support in Safari on macOS. The option to allow plug-ins described below is no longer supported by Safari.
No matter which web browser you use on your computer, you will need the Java plug-in from Oracle in order to view content that uses Java, such as Java applets. The Safari web browser on Mac from Apple is no exception. Java applets are common on the Internet. It is important, therefore, to know how to enable and disable Java in Safari on Mac if it is your web browser of choice.
First, please be certain the version of Java on your computer is current. Once you have verified Java is installed on your computer, please follow the instructions below to learn how to enable or disable Java in Safari on Mac.
1. Launch the Safari application, and click the Safari file menu. Select Preferences from the drop-down menu.
2. The Preferences dialog will launch in a new window. Click the Security icon.
To enable Internet plug-ins, including Java, to load in Safari, check the Internet Plugins: Allow Plug-ins check box. Unlike Safari on Windows, there is no individual check box for Enable Java for Safari on Mac.
3. When you encounter Java content in Safari, Safari will block the content from loading. You will see a notification in the browser window where the Java content would otherwise load:
4. Click the right-arrow in the notification. A Do you want to trust the website… dialog will display.
In this case, we visited the Java.com web site to load a test Java applet. Since we trust the web site, we clicked the Trust button to allow java.com to use the Java plug-in. When we re-visit the Java content on this web site, the Java content will now display.
5. You can manage your trusted web sites, and choose degrees of trust, by returning to the Security settings of Safari’s Preferences window. Adjacent to the Internet Plugins: Allow Plug-ins check box, click the Website Settings… button.
A new dialog will launch. The dialog displays all of the Internet plug-ins currently installed. To manage the web sites you have trusted to use the Java plug-in, click Java in the left navigation pane. The list of web sites you have already trusted will display.
Use the pull-down menu adjacent to the web site in the list to choose a level of trust you want to extend to this site. You may choose from Ask, Block, Allow or Allow Always (or Run In Unsafe Mode). You may delete a web site from this list by highlighting it with your mouse, and clicking the minus button at the bottom of the list.
