Great idea--paste away. Feel free to edit my ramblings since I can be a bit verbose.
But it gets even better, at least on the accessibility side (remembering though that a functioning
Java JRE is required for other LO components).
So now, in addition to JavaFX, Oracle has bundled Java Access Bridge v2.0.3 into the JRE 1.7u6; it
is installed by default but is left inactive when a patch-in-place upgrade of JRE is done. I think
the toggle between JAB active and inactive is going to be an issue during LO installation and use.
Jamal Mazrui's JWin JAB installer isn't obsolete, probably still the way to go for a clean JAB
v2.0.2 installation, especially with a JRE 1.6u34 install. But I've sent Jamal a note suggesting
it might be time to rework the JWin installer.
Also, I have an open bug https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=54064 of how I think the JRE
and JAB bit me during a LO 126.96.36.199 (RC2) test installation--manifested as an installer hang at java
with incomplete LO user configuration build for a non-privileged user account. Haven't yet
attempted to reproduce to verify--but reopened the bug for review as I believe it is a Java JRE /
JAB related installation issue that will need some work.

I really liked this answer and i think we need an FAQ page about java because the issue keeps
cropping up. It seems a lot of people here each know about different problems with java and it
would be good to collect together some of the issues and how to work around them.
So, i made the page
and am about to copy & paste Stuart's email into the page. Please feel free to edit to make the
page more useful.
