Description Thorsten Wagner 2015-01-01 14:29:01 UTC
When looking for a Java runtime environment within the Preferences / OpenOffice / Java dialog a process per installed JRE seems to be started with user interaction. This causes icons displayed for a short time within OS X dock.

Steps to reproduce:

(1) Open Preferences / OpenOffice / Java dialog

(2) Select "Use a Java runtime environment"

Desired behaviour:

Processes should be started without user interaction. This is possible with OS X. Without user interaction (headless) no icons are flashing within OS X dock.

The problem appears on Mac OS X 10.9 with OpenOffice 4.2 revision 1648122 from trunk, but seems to exist in earlier revisions too.
