With Mac OS X Lion, Apple has a change of direction in terms of Java runtime support. Apple has stated that it is returning the development and support of Java runtime back to Oracle. Java runtime is not bundled as default in Lion as in previous Mac OS X. Instead it is a separate download. Apparently the transition of Java runtime codebase back to Oracle is not ready. Thus Apple is still providing its own version of Java for Mac OS X Lion. You can download Apple’s Java for OS X Lion from the link below.
