Reportedly, the language tool extension does not work with Java 7.
Under Linux all Java databases including the embedded ones do not run 
properly with Java 7.
There are dozends of issues with different versions of LibreOffice, 
OpenOffice, Java7, Java6, 32 bit, 64 bit, extensions and databases on 
various platforms.
For the all current versions of both office suites Java6 seems to be the 
best advice. For Windows it needs to be the one for 32-bit platform in 
any case, even if Java 7 works for you.
