    Does anyone know if any standard Office 2007 add-ins utilize Java for their
    functionality?
    If so, does anyone know if the JRE version is important?

    We're about to undergo an update to our Oracle Business suite environment
    and it includes the installation of a specific Sun JRE (don't know the
    version yet) and I want to be ahead of the curve if anything in the Office
    suite is likely to be affected.

    Thanks for the info

    Doug

    ps - I did a search of the forum and googled, no joy yet. I'm off to do
    more and if I find anythin, I'll post back here.

    Not internally in the sense that VBA is internal/native to Office.
    If Java can do COM automation it could use Office apps as components; whether
    it can create a COM add-in that loads in Office or not is another question.

    From each app, do Office Button | [appname] Options | Add-Ins
    Consult the add-in vendor to see if there are any Java dependencies.
