Hi :)
Where Andreas offers a choice of either 
3.5.3 with any Java
3.4.6 with Java 6 (not 7)

I would recommend 3.4.6 with Java 6u31.  

I thought compatibility with Java 7 had been back-ported to LO 3.4.5&3.4.6
but if that's not working for you then the Java 6u31 should be fine.  Not
long ago people often had to go back to the worryingly ancient Java 6u21 as
anything after 6u24 slowed or crashed quite a few people's machines.  The LO
devs seem to have fixed that.  

The problem seems to be with Oracle's 'professional' programmers or may it's
part of some strategy to start profiting from Java which is currently free.   
At the moment it is just making people lose confidence in Java.  LibreOffice
devs are writing-out any dependence on Java.  Hopefully Extensions-devs
might go the same way too.  Sadly not enough people are working on Base at
the moment but it seems to have picked-up a bit.  Caligra Office have a
database program called Kexi which just fixed a few issues so it might be
worth trying.  I think most people run Base quite happily but avoid using
the internal HsqlDb.  HsqlDb as an external DB seems fine but there are
other choices for a wide variety of back-ends.  
Regards from
Tom :)
