Similar to mailing lists, Java is a blessing for developers while being
a pain in the ass for end users.
This is why I use to recommend to turn off any use of Java for the whole
office suite unless you are very sure that you need it.
If you really need Java then you should install the latest version of
the old Java 6 trunk (Java 7 might work in most cases though).
Under Windows this needs to be the 32-bit version even on a 64-bit
system. Under WIndows there is another Java problem which requires
installation of some Microsoft patch as described in
Under Linux there is a performance problem when you run Java databases
with Java 7.
