How to create a database on a Mac?

I can open some documents in LO but I cannot create a database. It’s Java related. My versions are LO and Java 1.8.0_101-b13. I believe these are the most up to date. What do I need to do?

BTW I have tried to find where Java is lodged on my computer so that I can use the Advanced LO settings to detect it but have failed.

Consult the LO FAQ - Java for Base under MacOSX.
