I'm starting to learn java programming and want to use version 1.7 or >. Here is what a command line search java -version gives me:
java version "1.6.0_51"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_51-b11-457-11M4509)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.51-b01-457, mixed mode)

Can I install Java 1.7 without problems? I want to install Eclipse as well. I don't think these are avalible form the apps store. Do I get them from the java web site and download from there ? Most of all I don't want to mess up my OS X.

QUOTE Thanks
