To add  to Tom's comments.  

For now, the Java Access Bridge and a JRE provide ALL accessibility support for 
the Windows builds.  Will eventually change with likely implementation of an 
IAccessible2 native bridge (fdo#39956) to the UNO Accessibility API. But for 
now Java remains a requirement.

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Re: [libreoffice-marketing] Java dependencies

Hi :)
It's still Base and some Wizards and some Extensions.  Something like 12% of 
the code is written in Java but it's in those areas that people rarely use.

Base can mostly be used without needing Java but only if you use an external 
back-end rather than the in-built one.  I think the Report builder still would 
need it but Base experts seem to be advising people to avoid that anyway.  The 
internal back-end is HsqlDb which runs on Java even if you use the much more 
up-to-date version from their website as an external back-end.  There are other 
smaller faster ones for small amounts of data.  HsqlDb seems to be the best of 
those even though it depends on Java.  Non-java ones tend to be better for 
large amounts of data and include Postgresql and MySql / MariaDb.  These last 3 
seem to be the most frequently recommended by the Base Experts.

I've forwarded this to the Users List because there are quite a few Base 
Experts there that might be able to correct me if i'm wrong or just generally 
be a bit more helpful than i've been.
Regards from
Tom :)
