Pretty easy and straight forward actually!
Just go here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html
Choose the link that 's next to Mac OS X x64 (don't forget to accept the agreement at the very top of the box!). Open the file once it's done and follow the instructions. That's it. :) To make sure it's actually installed open a terminal window and type both:


java -version

and

javac -version

it should tell you something like java 1.8.something like so:
(note, I have java 1.7 because that's what we're supposed to use for our programs at university)

You should be good to go then!
