 ce> Where can I get the latest update to Java?

there's two methods... i generally open the control panel and click on the java
control applet... then in there choose the update link...

another method is to manually download it and there are two methods, here,
too... one is to download an installer which will then download and install...
when going this way, i prefer to download the full package as if i were
installing offline... i see no reason to download an installer and then
download again... that particular bit of logic has never been understood over
here ;)

In that case I'm missing a lot since I don't have Java installed.

I have LO and I have Java disabled in its settings. I know I'm missing
certain features because of this, but I still need to discover which
ones because I don't feel like I'm missing something...

strange, i manage to get around all sorts of websites without having it ins=
talled. are you sure you're thinking of java and not javascript? lots of si=
tes require javascript and the advice about java has nothing to do with jav=
ascript. the relationship between java and javascript is about as close as =
the relationship between car and carrot.

In oowriter, take a look a look at Tools/Options/Java, or
https://help.libreoffice.org/Common/Java

My understanding is that it's used by libreoffice-base.

David W. Hodgins has brought this to us :

I was referring to his contention that Java "... is use by almost all
WEB sites, therefore your browser needs it" - indeed I see it is used  
quite a lot, but one can easily browse without it.

I'll agree with you on that.  I only enable java on
a very select few web sites, as with other plugins.

Most websites that require java, javascript, or other
plugins, can be avoided by looking for other sites that
don't require them.
