Read the doc.  To quote from RUNNING.txt:

(1) Download and Install the Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE)

(1.1) Download the Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE),
      release version 6.0 or later, from
      http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

(1.2) Install the JRE according to the instructions included with the
      release.

(1.3) Set an environment variable named JRE_HOME to the pathname of
      the directory into which you installed the JRE, e.g. c:\jre6.0
      or /usr/local/java/jre6.0.

NOTE: You may also use the full JDK rather than just the JRE. In this
      case set your JAVA_HOME environment variable to the pathname of
      the directory into which you installed the JDK, e.g. c:\jdk6.0
      or /usr/local/java/jdk6.0.
