To run Magnolia CMS in the Tomcat application server that ships with the bundle you need a Java Development Kit (JDK) or a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on your system.
What is the difference? JRE is an implementation of the Java Virtual Machine which executes Java programs. JDK is a bundle of software that you can use to develop Java based applications. If you plan to write your own Java code, get the JDK. If you just want to run Magnolia CMS, the JRE is sufficient.

- Starting with Magnolia CMS 4.4.11 in the 4.4 series
If you want to run a supported version of Java—one with updates for bugs and security issues—then you will need to upgrade to Java 7. If this isn’t an option, you will have to purchase some form of support contract. Generally, upgrading to Java 7 will be the better long term option but the right decision for your business will depend on your circumstances. -- Java 6 End of Life Impact for Apache Tomcat Users
However, you should keep using Java SE 6 on Mac OS X. Java SE 7 has an issue that manifests during activation and can bring the Java virtual machine down with a segmentation fault. Once Oracle fixes the issue, Java SE 7 will also be certified for use on Mac OS X.
