OOo's java requirements were the same way and now that I've made the switch to Libre I finally went looking for an answer because I also didn't like that "one liner" about java.
I had a feeling it had to do with SQL, ODBC, and DBMS, but wasn't sure, and why the big secret?
I found some clues discussing the new release of Libre 4 (sound familiar?) at OS News
Specifically, this one
mentions Base needs it for JDBC
, and this one
mentions it's needed as a hook
for compatibility primarily with MS Access a MS Office application.
I could also see it being needed for MS Excel, Project, and maybe Word, any program that has the capability to handle databases.
