I just went to this site and then use their download link to get to "";. For Windows there is only two options Online and Offline installs with both dealing with "jre-6u29-windows-i586-s.exe". So there is not 32-bit and 64-bit version for Windows.

Linux, on the other hand, does have 32-bit and 64-bit versions. To be honest, I still would rather just get the update for the JRE from the repositories. BUT, for those who want to latest and greatest JRE, you can download the latest version for Linux and install it.

Also, there is information about why Java 7 is not available for users yet.


Why is Java SE 7 not yet available on
The new release of Java is first made available to the developers to ensure no major problems are found before we make it available on the website for end users to download the latest version. If you are interested in trying Java SE 7 it can be downloaded from

At least for Windows there was no different versions.

Windows version is listed as "i586" as in "jre-6u22-windows-i586.exe"

For Linux version, all you have to do is go to your Package Manager and install the "default JRE" listed.

It is sort of weird that even the latest Ubuntu installs [11.04 and 11.10] that automatically installs LO does not install the JRE as well. Last week, I did a test install of Ubuntu 11.10, Kubuntu 11.10, and Mint 11 [Debian based now], and all three install LO without installing the "default JRE" package.

I got a proposal from one of FLOSS actyvists in Lithuania about
including JRE download link into download
Putting a download link is not a problem.
Just make sure that the users get the stable/release version and
understand that they need a 32bit version when using 32bit version of
LibreOffice, and 64bit when using 64bit version of LibreOffice.


Not trying to hijack this thread but i installed a windows bootcamp partition on my imac and i went to which redirects to the oracle java page, and if you hit get java now it takes you to the java 7 versions but you can find older. then once you choose if you want just the jre or both jdk and jre it takes you too the download page where you will see both a 32bit version and 64bit versions. I have asked in the past and its ok to have both 32bit and 64bit versions installed sideby side.
