Proof??? JRE works with 5.0 and doesn't work with 5.1. That is pretty objective proof.
LibreOffice code changed and now does not find JRE on OS X.
In case you weren't paying attention when 5.1.0 came out, here are some posts from a thread
"Java broke on LO 5.1 on Macs"
from the email@example.com mailing list. Note the comment /*"I'm not sure we did
ourselves a favour with that change..."*/.
And in that very thread - started by you - it was explained - to you -
that this was a *deliberate* code change to address a *broken* JRE
provided by Apple (the fact that you had to have the Java6 JRE installed
to get the Jave8 JRE installed is a clue that something wasn't right,
I quote V Stuart Foote:
No, Oracle must fix the JRE, or Apple must correct OS X Java system calls.
Until then, LO for tdf#94716 now requires use of the unaffected JDK -- at
the expense of OS X users now having to install the JDK rather than a broken
JRE to access the Java runtimes.
See Oracle's notes:
The LibreOffice details are in tdf#74877
LibreOffice has no skin in the game beyond running the Java based HSQLDB
for Base internal database--and when we fully move to FireBird very little
requirement for Java going forward. Java runtime -- from a JRE or JDK
becomes irrelevant to the project.
So, you are complaining about a Mac bug here... please take it to the
appropriate place (wherever you report Mac bugs)...
