LO doesn't find any Java version except for one.
I don't think it can anymore "automatically" (but I'm prepared to be
proven wrong ;-)), at least not on Mac, the handling of the Java path
was changed during 3.4.x or 3.5.x development, I seem to recall, because
LO was having problems recognising the write system Java path.

That is too bad.  I'd like to use an updated Java since Apple is a bit slow
to update.

I want to run a more recent version and have more recent versions of
Java installed.

But I can't add the versions of Java RE installed in

I have OpenJava 1.7.0u.jre installed in

Why doesn't LO use the 1.6.0_31 version installed?

Why can't I select to run 1.7.0u.jre from

Like I said, I think it has to do with the path changes introduced for
Java recognition during 3.4/3.5 development (I don't exactly remember
when this happened).

The only thing I can think of is if you change your environment
variables in your session bash profile or the corresponding session
plist. You might then be able to force LO to take the Java version of
your choice.

I checked my .profile and changed the Java_home to where the OpenJava
1.7.0u.jre is installed.
Now java -version shows the correct 1.7.0 version.

java -version
openjdk version "1.7.0-u4-b13"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0-u4-b13-20120224)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.0-b16, mixed mode)
---end quote---

LibreOffice 3.5.2 still shows the 1.6.0_29.   I can't get the Options:Java
to select the newer java 1.7.0 version.  I tried to "Add" and "Class Path"
but no luck.  Shouldn't this work?

While I understand that the automatic finding of java versions on the Mac
has been problematic and been discontinued, shouldn't I be able to use
"Add" or "Class Path" to add the OpenJava 1.7.0 version?

I think that since Apple has decided to stop providing Java and is leaving
it up to the vendor, then the default install place will change to
/Library/Java from /System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines.   In that case
how will LO find a functioning recent version of java ????


Thanks again for your help, Alex.
