I keep seeing this fallacy of "only Base requires Java" repeated in this forum and so this is to keep the record straight. This may not be true, unless LO has changed in this area from 5.2.7. I can no longer test it. From my experience back in July of 2017, some of the configs in Tools > Options also seem to need Java. When I was having problems with LO Base crashing after a Linux Kernel security update which turned out to affect Java, I tried to use a tools config or two and some crashed the same way - implying they also used Java. IIRC, it was when I clicked on Internet > MediaWiki. So there may be other areas of LO in addition to Base that seem to use Java.

I remember a while back, LO was making an effort to remove Java requirements. Some progress to that end has been made over the years, but I suspect there are still some threads connecting LO to Java, besides Base.

i read somewhere that libreoffice 64 bit and 32 bit both supports java
32 bit version.
i recommend you that download java 32bit and test it that does it
resolve your issue.
however, thanks God, java is required only for base and other
applications and features of libreoffice, dont need java.

Hi Thomas,

The Java website allows you download the newest version, but does NOT
ask about 32/64-bit installation.
(I presume it detects that automatically)
No, it seems it doesn't. I haven't any Windows running here, but heard a
lot of wrong Java for LO, because 64bit and 32bit problem. Seems the
automatic download of Java mostly installs 32bit-Java.

Have a look here for Java for 64bit and try:

... it isn't /de for you, but you have to search for "All Java downloads".
