When you install java, you just need to get the right version for your chipset. If you have a 64 bit CPU, install the 64 bit or 32 bit java. If you have a 32 bit CPU, install the 32 bit java 'cos 64 bit won't work.
Whether you want the JDK or just the runtime is up to you when you install it, and makes no difference you your ability to run a java program. You only need the JDK if you want to compile java code yourself.
Does that clear things up at all?

What i ment is that i have both x86 and x64 versions of java installed (JRE), as i indeed use firefox that needs 32 bit.. But i want to take the advantage of Java x64 when using PMS
I just cant seem to find the correct parameter setting to point java_home to look for my x64 java installation.. Every java dependant program uses the x86 version by default.
I've checked Google, and all tutorials mention to point JAVA_HOME to a JDK, not a JRE
So i'm a little lost
