Re: openoffice.org missing .jar classes


You don't :)  Well, that's not completely true.

First, the issue of missing Java.  We do not build OOo with Java
enabled, because we cannot distribute a JVM with Fedora.  Therefore,
Java support in OOo is disabled.  Debian does the same thing, with the
same patches.  Things that use Java, for example the Report Wizard, will
not function on the current Red Hat RPMs.

What I'm looking at is a good way to perhaps _build_ with Java here, but
allow OOo to run on non-Java-enabled systems and Java-enabled systems at
the same time.  That's not exactly easy though.

For the time being, if you'd like to use Java, I'd suggest grabbing the
SRPM and removing the "--disable-java" from the ./configure options, and
also commenting out all the "handle-no-solar-java" patches.
