Which Java should I install 32 or 64-bit?
Strictly speaking, on a 32-bit CPU architecture machine, you should install 32-bit java/JRE. On the other hand, on a 64-bit CPU architecture machine, you are free to choose between 32-bit java/JRE and 64-bit java/JRE. Both will work just fine.
Do I need both 32 and 64-bit Java?
Probably not (actually one would hope you don’t need Java support in the browser at all, but that’s unrealistic for many). Even in 64 bit Windows the default IE client is the 32 bit version. Unless you need Java support in the 64 bit version of IE don’t install it.

Can 64 bit Java run on 32 bit Windows?
A java program is an intermediate byte code and not platform dependant. There is no such thing like “64 bit java program”. But the JVM which runs the java program is of course platform dependant. On a 32bit machine you have to use a 32bit JRE or JDK, and vice versa.
Why is Java installing 32-bit?
In general 32-bit java is installed because many browsers are still 32 bit. This is changing allot with time, but for the longest time browsers stuck to being mostly 32-bit. 32-bit programs run fine on 64-bit operating systems.
Is there a JDK for 32-bit?
