Base cannot find Java JDK/JRE in my Mac

I have had LibreOffice for some time. Finally decided to try to use Base. It immediately told me it cannot find the requred Java. I know I already have the latest Java Environment, but I downloaded it again: jre-8u65-macosx-x64.pkg I went back to Oracle's website and searched for a JDK. I think I downloaded it. Still Base says I don't have the required Java.
Do I have it in the wrong directory? Or did I download the wrong Java file?

What's a wiki? How should I have done it?

Having read all the answers and then tried again to install JDK, I decided I do not have the technical knowledge or the time to deal with this. I will not use Base.

Hello @Bill Sullivan,

Please see my answer in this post -> Mac LO 5.3.7 (64) JRE. Also be sure to check out the links in the answer & subsequent links in the links.

Typically a wrong version is the cause of the problem. Occasionally the settings. All this is in the answers pointed to.
