Great idea--paste away. Feel free to edit my ramblings since I can be a bit 
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 
Also, I have an open bug of 
how I think the JRE and JAB bit me during a LO (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.

Hi :)  
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.  

Regards from
Tom :)
