LibreOffice and Java

I have been told that the reason why LibreOffice Writer is failing to do
spelling checking is that because Java is not installed on my system
(LibreOffice Writer on Ubuntu 16.04.1, 64 bit).

Did a bit of checking:-

ian at turing:~$ java --version
The program 'java' can be found in the following packages:
 * default-jre
 * gcj-5-jre-headless
 * openjdk-8-jre-headless
 * gcj-4.8-jre-headless
 * gcj-4.9-jre-headless
 * openjdk-9-jre-headless
Try: sudo apt install <selected package>
ian at turing:~$ which java

All I need to know now is which Java package(s) I should install.

Any suggestions?
