OpenOffice - JDK not detected on Mac OSX Snow Leopard

In October 2010 Apples Mac OSX software update (Java 6 u22) broke compatibility with 3.2.1 (and earlier versions).  To fix the problem you will need to replace two lib files: libjvmfwk.dylib.3 and sunjavaplugin.dylib

These files are located in:

Download the new versions:

Backup original libs:
mv /Applications/ /Applications/
mv /Applications/ /Applications/

Copy the new libs files in place:
cp ~/Downloads/libjvmfwk.dylib.3 /Applications/
cp ~/Downloads/sunjavaplugin.dylib /Applications/
