I am planning to move to 64 bit architecture including java 64-bit on windows OS.
Any experience in that?

Yeah, I've run a 64-bit JVM on both Windows and Linux. Nothing really comes to mind as far as anything really different.
The reason I am asking this question is there was a statement in PPM9.14_SysReqs_CompatMatrix.pdf which says
"PPM requires 32-bit JDK on 64-bit operating systems".
I attached the image.
When I need a support I don't want HP to tell me that they don't support 64-bit JDK. So I don't want to be left alone.
I was kind of confused.
You're right...it is confusing. On pg. 28 of the "Third Edition" guide, under "Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition (64-bit only)" it says
Java Platform StandardEdition 6 Development Kit(JDK) 1.6.0_07 (6.0 Update7) or later (both 32- and64-bit) (available from Sun)
For "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Platform 5.0, Updates 1 through 6 (64-bit only)" it specifies the 64-bit JDK as the only option ("64-bit JDK only") supported.
You also have to know that the "or later" doesn't mean JDK 1.7 unless you're on 9.2
At any rate, I've been running the 64-bit on Win 2008 R2, Linux, and Win 2003 (officially unsupported) without any issues.
