It should already be on your MBP, but if not, try here:

Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 4

To see if it's installed on your machine, run: /Applications/Utilities/Java Preferences

he mentioned " JDK 1.6 for OS X" explicitly – Ben Glasser Nov 8 '13 at 6:30
But he wanted the JRE – Eric Nov 8 '13 at 17:01
