According the the release notes from Apple at https://developer.apple.com/library/prerelease/mac/releasenotes/General/rn-osx-10.11/ :
OS X El Capitan is the last major release of OS X that will support the previously deprecated Java 6 runtime and tools provided by Apple. Applications or features that depend upon Java 6 may not function properly or will not launch when Java 6 is removed. Developers should move to a newer version of Java as provided by Oracle.
