Only one way to find out for sure ;)

However, with Apple turning over maintenance of the Java JRE for OSX to Oracle, you have little 

You might poke around and see what has been said on the various Apple forums in general about 
stability of the upgraded JRE, but you should not have substantive issues with LibreOffice.

As to needing to refresh your Java-applet plugins, probably a good idea since those tend to be the 
vectors for security compromises that the updated JRE repairs.

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Is it safe to install Java for OS X 2012-006 1.0


I wonder whether I can safely install the new Java for Apple (Java for OS X
2012-006 1.0) that is proposed by the App Store.
The update improves security, reliability and compatibility , updating to
1.6.0_37 for Java SE 6.
What worries me a little is that the update will eliminate the Java-applet plugin (from Apple) from 
all web browsers it find on my computer. I will then have to install manually the newest version of 
the Java-applet plugin from Oracle...

What will be the incidence of this installation (and possible
des-installation) on LibreOffice?
I ask because there were earlier issues with Java updates (by Apple or
otherwise) for the norĂ¹al functioning of LibO.

Thanks for your ideas
