From the developer:
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 distributes Java as part of their release, the Java Preferences application is retired.
You may want to check out more Mac applications, such as GStreamer Java, Strata Design 3D SE 7 or Oracle Berkeley DB Java Edition, which might be related to Java SE Runtime Environment 7.
