Question Why am I receiving Java updates from Apple?

Hi, I have previously used Apple provided java but currently I have Java from Oracle installed. Although I'm still get java updates from Apple. Why is that? And which java version (Apple or Oracle) is better to keep in my computer ?

below is the latest java update I got from apple.

Java 6 runtime still remains on your mac, even though the plugin is now java 7 by oracle. The browser will use 7
