So, at the moment, sorry but you DO need the Java Runtime environment as
provided from a JDK.  Otherwise, I would say simply don't use Base and don't
select a Java runtime--but not sure if on the OS X builds you get the
option. When I get a moment I'll actually check.

No, unfortunately, you don't get the choice irrespective of whether or
not you use Base. There are hooks in at least the Writer module that
require Java instantiation, and possibly also a bundled extension which
requires a Java environment to be detected (NLPSolver) for Calc.

There are no hooks in the Writer module that require Java per se. There are hooks in various places that extensions written in Java could tap into.

AFAICS, the only bundled extension coming with stock LO 5.1 for Mac that is written in Java is the NLPSolver, but it should not require Java to be available during start of LO, only when trying to use that feature.

But one can have (non-bundled) extensions installed from previous versions of LO that require Java, even so that they require Java directly at (first) start of LO 5.1.
