Hi :)
You might be able to turn off java completely.
Tools - Options - Java

Generally and for most programs it is best to have only the very newest JRE.  It is always written 
with security flaws which we don't find out about until later.  The company that produces it 
assures us that their newer one is "safer" or even sometimes say it is safe but then a month or so 
later tell us that we have to upgrade again because that version has horrendous vulnerabilities.  

So, LibreOffice is trying to write-out any need for java and at the moment it is only needed for a 
fwe things such as the database (if you use the default back-end that is embedded in Base), a few 
wizards and some extensions.  

Where it hasn't been written-out it seems their  best version is 6_21 or on Windows 6u21 unless you 
are using the very newest beta-testing pre-release version of LibreOffice (the 3.5.x branch) in 
which case java 7_something should be best.  In LibreOffice 3.3.x and 3.4.x any version higher than 
6_24 created problems for a lot of people and higher numbers even made LO crash in quite a few 
cases.  If you are using higher numbers without hassle then you can probably turn off java 
altogether (in LO)

Just my 2cents from watching this list a lot

Tom :)

Maybe this can help you

i use Libreoffice and have installed the next JRE's;

JRE 1.6.u30 x86
JRE 1.6u30 x64
JRE 1.7u2 x86
JRE 1.7u2 x64

libreoffice ofrcourse only uses the x86 versions ... and only the 1.6...
IE 64bit uses the x64 jre
FFox uses the x86 jre since it's 32 bit

all other 64 bit apps use 1.7 x64
all other 32 bit apps use 1.7 x86

it depends on the application which jre is used... it has to be compatible with it's bit-code...

Met vriendelijke groeten,

This may sound obvious but I am not certain of the answer and wanted to
double-check here.

When installting LibreOffice for Windows for use on a 64-bit system, is
it best to install the 32-bit or the 64-bit JRE ?

Thanks for any information on this.
