LibreOffice 5.1.1 on Macs still doesn't recognize Java Runtime Environment (JRE 1.8.0_73 & OS X ver.10.11.3) You need to fix this bug. Can't use database without JRE.
As noted in the thread LibreOffice User ML 2016-02-10 thread <http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/Java-broke-on-LO-5-1-on-Macs-tc4174830.html> , for the 5.1 release of LibreOffice the JRE installed with the JDK is now required for use of the HSQLDB and the remaining bundled Java apps (NLPSolver). Moving it over here to the LibreOffice Discus ML is fine. Cordial discussion is always welcome. However, the reality remains that until Oracle and Apple complete work on removing the Java Runtime Support framework unique to OS X (now Oracle's responsibility and marked for implementation for Java 9) use of the JDK deployed JRE (the NeoOffice provided patches) as now implemented in LibreOffice is where things are. Not ideal, but a WORKSFORME workaround. We can't fix what Oracle and Apple broke (rather omitted), and we probably won't revert to the status quo of 5.0 and the 4.x release as that required its own set of work arounds--i.e. requiring install of Apples unsupported JRE in addition to a Java 8 JRE. That is the reality.
