Has anyone verified Libreoffice works without Java ?
Is it worth while to dump OO for it ?

It's really very funny to see people become paranoid on Java. If it's required, just install it!

Most things do work without it, but a few require it, notably Base.

I guess you have not kept up with the problems it's had lately.

But I think some of the extensions need java so if you really need the extension you might have no choice. I do not need them. So I will not install the java

I've read the whole forum I assure you, I know what I'm saying.
I guess you've not seen that the security problem is only within the web browser plugin, not the whole Java runtime environment, and LibreOffice doesn't make use of the web plugin.............

Besides, when counting Antivirus, UAC, some backup and most important common sense, you can enjoy Java without any major problems without sacrificing functionality.

Java can be disabled for browsers if not needed, and the only feature of LibreOffice which requires Java is Base.

I'm not sure to be honest, I don't use Base, someone will have try it without Java installed/enabled for desktop programs, and then report back any compatibility issues
