My PC recently crashed, or failed to boot again, probably hardware HDD problem but not sure it happened a while after Java download and a Garmin firmware update that worked OK but took ages. I need Java again to run JOSM and GPSPrune and don't want to go through installing a Win7.iso from scratch again.

Helpfully, JOSM's wiki has this question answered. That links (for me in English) to the java.com download page .

The "safest" site to get the Java installer from would be Java.com. I'm not sure what a Windows 7 ISO would have to with downloading or installing Java, though, so maybe your question isn't really what you wrote in the title.

"safe"? you did not not even link to the https version of this site. ;-) I really would prefer "my" link which has other very useful tips, e.g. on the bundled crapware by oracle and, most security-wise importantly, the java browser plugin. But, well, seems you guys do not like useful info and prefer more direct links. ;-)

If you're confused by the "Win7" comment have a read of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Java_Virtual_Machine - that explains a bit about how it might have come to be mentioned (not that it's relevant now, of course).

Umm, regarding your question title: see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Java_Runtime_Environment

But, judging from your text you seem to have a PC problem which may require external help.
