 <h1>Java &amp; Apache OpenOffice, OpenOffice.org</h1>
 
-<p>Java is required for complete OpenOffice (OpenOffice.org) functionality. Java is
mainly
-required for the HSQLDB database engine (used by our database product Base)
-and to make use of accessibility and assistive technologies. Furthermore some
-wizards rely on Java technology.  See additional topics pertaining to the use of Java
-in OpenOffice.org and Apache OpenOffice in the <a href="">Installation FAQ</a></p>
-
-<p>So what does this imply for me? Base (the database component) relies
-completely on Java technologies to run, but other programs (like Writer, Calc
-and Impress) only need Java for special functionality.
-If you do not need to use Base and do not want to use any of the Wizards, then you do not
need to have Java installed  and configured 
-for running Apache OpenOffice (and older versions of OpenOffice.org). 
-You can completely prevent OpenOffice from prompting you about the use of Java by
-telling OpenOffice not to use a Java runtime environment (JRE). From the OpenOffice main
menu use: 
-<strong>Tools -> OpenOffice.org -> Java</strong>, and uncheck "Use a Java
runtime environment".
-However, we do recommend that you have a Java Runtime Environment on your system to take

-full advantage of OpenOffice's features without any issues.</p>
-
-<p>  Legacy versions of OpenOffice.org (3.3 and below)
-included a JRE packaged with the download. The latest Apache OpenOffice 3.4 does not.</p>
-
-<p>If you already have a JRE installed on your system in one of the standard areas
for
-Java installation, OpenOffice should detect this installation and let you choose it for use
-in OpenOffice via the <strong>Tools-> OpenOffice.org -> Java</strong>.

-If you have a JRE installed that is not detected, you should be able to add it through
-this same menu.</p>
-
-<p>If you choose not to configure OpenOffice  with Java (or just forgot
-about it) you can easily install Java afterwards to get the missing
-functionality to work.</p> 
-
-<p>The current version, Apache OpenOffice 3.4, has worked reliably in a variety of

-environments using both <a href="http://java.com">Oracle Java</a> and <a href="http://openjdk.java.net/">openJDK</a>.
-Feel free to download a JRE from either of these sites if you feel you need this functionality.
-</p>
-
-<p><strong>The current version, Apache OpenOffice 3.4, has reported problems
with using the 32-bit JRE on 64-bit Windows 7 
-systems. However, this problem can not be reproduced in all cases. Java 1.7 is the latest
Java from Oracle. </strong>
-</p>
-
-<p>Please report any problems you experience with using Java on OpenOffice through
-our bug reporting system, <a href="https://issues.apache.org/ooo/">Bugzilla</a>,
or one of the other support venues listed
-in the <a href="http://www.openoffice.org/support/">support</a> page, either
