Re: [tdf-discuss] Java dependency


Agree. Java affect key components, not only extensions: base needs
java, and as consequence the bibliographic database too.

2010/11/2 T. J. Brumfield <enderandrew@gmail.com>:
I'm an user, and not a developer. So perhaps this is a silly question.

From a user's perspective, it always seemed like the Java portions of OOo
were shoehorned in. Starting a JVM eats up unneccessary memory and takes
time. One of the most common complaints of OOo is that it is a bloated app
that is slow and takes up too many resources.

I assumed that Sun kept the Java portions of OOo in since they liked to push
Java. In the age of netbooks, tablets and mobile computing, trimming the fat
becomes more important.

Would it be possible to remove the Java portions of LibreOffice and
reimplement them without the need to fire up a JVM?

Is there a technical advantage of running the wizards and such in Java that
I'm not aware of?

Thanks!
