The operative words from that article are: "This update also removes the Java Preferences application, which is no longer required to configure applet settings," the support note concludes. (My bold) In other words, the security risks of using Java have been removed, but without loss of functionality. If you feel you must jave Java you can get it from here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre7-downloads-1637588.h tml Further information here: http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/press/1735645

You should always install security updates.

only if you use sites which use java it's a plugin like flash and other plugins for browsers
