Hi all

I saw this a few days ago, I'd like to know what should I make of it?:

I never install Java when I install LibreOffice, but a few people end up
installing it.

I have seen a few threads about it in the fr-discuss list, but nothing
clear/concise (although I may have missed a post or two).

Thanks for any information.

AFAIK Java is primarily used by the embedded Base engine and possibly
some extensions. If you use a non-Java database (MySQL, Postgres,
MariaDB, etc) that does not use Java you do not need Java.

The security problems are Java problems and are not OS or app related
and can affect any computer running the unpatched Java version(s). My
understanding is the transmission is likely via rogue or corrupted
websites that use Java rather than via a downloaded Java app.

I do not know if this issue affects the openJRE project.
