I'm writing about AOO and Java 7 (see subject).

This example doesn't fit. I've you've watched the issue 
(https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=118352) and this thread 
you'll see that I've been told to try
- http://people.apache.org/~arielch/packages/
- 
http://people.apache.org/~orw/DevSnapshots-Rev.1229535/win32/OOo-Dev_OOO340m1_Win_x86_install_en-US.exe
- http://people.apache.org/~orw/
That's not the same as the work of Regina and Armin.

And I wrote that this are two sides of one medal. Fixing a) without b) 
is senseless. So it has to be fixed in one go.
