Note that there's a bit of confusion regarding the version numbers. The "2" in "Java 2 Standard Edition" (J2SE) was dropped since Java version 6.

You'll want to use the latest version, which is Java 7. Download the JDK (Java Development Kit) for Java 7 on Oracle's Java SE download page.

There are updates regularly; at the time of writing this the latest version is Java 7 update 25.
