Installation FAQ on macOS Platform
This topic provides answers for the following frequently asked questions about installing JDK on macOS computers.
1. How do I find out which version of Java is the system default?
When you run a Java application from the command line, it uses the default JDK. If you do not develop Java applications, then you do not need to worry about this. See Determining the Default JDK Version on macOS.
2. How do I uninstall Java?
See Uninstalling the JDK on macOS.
3. After installing Java for macOS 2012-006, can I continue to use Apple's Java 6 alongside the macOS JDK for Java 13?
If you want to continue to develop with Java 6 using command-line, then you can modify the startup script for your favorite command environment. For bash, use this:
$ export JAVA_HOME=`/usr/libexec/java_home -v 13`
Some applications use
/usr/bin/java to call Java. After installing Java for macOS 2012-006,
/usr/bin/java will find the newest JDK installed, and will use that for all of the Java-related command-line tools in
/usr/bin. You may need to modify those applications to find Java 6, or contact the developer for a newer version of the application.
4. What happened to the Java Preferences app in Application Utilities?
The Java Preferences app was part of the Apple Java installation and is not used by Oracle Java. Therefore, macOS releases from Apple that do not include Apple Java will not include Java Preferences.
Hi. I can't seem to get the LibreOffice Base to work on my Mac running Yosemite 10.10. (iMac early 2009). Everything else seems to be working fine, except for Base. I keep getting the error message:
*'The connection to the data source 'New Database' could not be established. No Java Installation could be found. Please check your installation.'*

I downloaded Java for OS X 2015-001 from the Apple Support page (link is https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572?l... ), and that was seemingly installed without any problems. I then restarted the computer and opened of Base, and keep getting the same error message.
Should I be installing the Java found in the Apple Support Page? Or, should I be installing the Java from this link: https://www.java.com/en/download/mac_... .

It doesn't work on IMacOS Sierra either! You can load every manual jre or jdk in existence, one after the other, (and I have) and it still has no effect on base.
