Java download 64bit vs 32bit

Hi, I am reading http://java.com/en/download/faq/java_win64bit.xml. I just installed windows 7 64-bit. I checked I have default IE8 (no 64bit edition). I never knew browser will be a factor for java version, so I was thinking of downloading 64-bit JDK, but by reading it, should I really stay 32bit JDK? My final goal is to install weblogic portal. Weblogic portal has 32 bit download for most OS including eclipse already. It only has one generic binary for 64 bit for all OS, so I need to download JDK, eclipse separately. So before I go too far, I need to decide 64bit or 32bit. Thanks!
