Java is a computer language. If you want to run programs written in it
on a computer you need at least the Java Runtime Environment (JRE). If
you want to write programs in it, you need extra files and must install
the Java Development Kit (JDK) instead (it contains the JRE).

To complicate matters, some programs need the JDK instead of the JRE to
run. It seems that the PlugIn is one such. It may be that you have the
JRE installed on your computer and that the computer is reporting this
as having 'Java' installed in order to simplify things for ordinary
people. If so, you need to find and install the JDK instead. (and
whoever decided that saying 'Java' instead of 'Java Runtime
Environment' was simpler and better needs shooting in the head :)

I'm afraid I can't tell you how to do that because I'm not familiar
with Macs.
