I installed the windows 10 preview and  then installed libreOffice and now I am attempting to create a database.  However, I am getting an error saying that "The connection to the data source "Phone Numbers" could not be established.  No Java installation could be found.  Please check your installation.

 I downloaded and installed jdk-8u31-windows-x64 and it claimed it installed correctly, but I still get the same error.  
Any help on this would be appreciated.

Hi,
I am not a libreoffice user, but maybe you just need to download and install JRE (Java Runtime Environnment) instead of JDK (Java Developpment Kit), I did not remember if jre is included in jdk.

You can try installing Java from the official site, but it does not officially supports Windows 10 yet, so you may run into problems... as happen with all preview versions of any OS or software.

Thanks for helping me with this issue.  
I never could get it to work, so I guess it is because it is not ready for windows yet as you mentioned.  
I finally gave up and installed Office Home And Student 2007 and that worked fine.
