You can use the 32 or the 64 bit versions.
But if you want to use the OCI/thick stuff, the bit level will have to match, 32 bit SQLDev with 32 bit Oracle Client with 32 bit JDK. Same goes with 64.
When you download the 64 bit dist of SQLDev for windows, you'll need to get a 64bit JDK, and make sure you have a 64 bit Oracle Client if you want to use that.
If you need more info, I wrote up more detailed instructions here
Appreciate your help.
I'm going to go ahead and use 64bit.
I tried pointing to Oracle Client 11.2.0 (C:\Oracle\product\11.2.0\client_1\jdk\bin) but it says "Java version 1.5.0_17 not supported. The minimum version required is 1.6.0_04. Without having to install a new JDK (don't ask - work machine installation security approval is almost impossible); is there a way to upgrade the JDK Java.exe in the Oracle Client?
You could install it on another machine, zip it up, and then extract the jdk directory onto your new machine.
Java5 is really old, and 6 is on it's way out. We're going to require 7 here soon, so you may want to just request to your network admin to install that for you...or at least get the ball rolling.
