If it's things that are missing the likelihood is it's only a package
away,  what you'll find is java can't be shipped by default and a lot
of the packages can't ship without full java in place.

The online version comes with java builtin as LO and OO can ship it.
What you'll find is there are several addition packages you can add to
get the online version.
