Java version recommendation?

I just installed Cascade 6.7 in our development instances and so far all seems well. I took a chance and upgraded the JRE to 64-bit 1.6 and everything seems to be working fine, but I wasn't sure if you had any recommendations or gotcha on which JRE to run, 1.5 or 1.6, and whether you recommended 32-bit vs. 64-bit?

Again, all seems well, but no one is really using development, so I have very little data so far.

    I've been using Java 1.6 64-bit in Linux for a while during development and never had anything break. 1.6 overall is supposed to be faster. I'm not sure of any noticeable differences between 32-bit vs. 64-bit.

    Any combination of these should work just fine. Since you have the options, I'd say go ahead and stick with Java 1.6 and a 64-bit JVM. While I'm not sure you'll necessarily see any improvement with 64-bit over 32-bit, the 64-bit JVM will give you the ability to allocate more RAM to Cascade Server should you ever decide that you need more than about 1.5GB.
