LibreOffice Base now prompts me to install Java JDK (developer’s kit) instead of Java RTE (run-time engine) that most users have. They seem to have an issue with locating RTE on Macs, though this issue just developed. On the error message you receive, there is a link to a page at LibreOffice that explains (a little) and has a link to Oracle, where you can download Java JDK. This only became an issue for me in the last day or so, though the bug seems to have been around a bit. Maybe an update caused my system to report the error. If you use my SubTracker database and run into the same error, get JDK and it will all work again.
