Linux and Java on Titanium 64 bit ?

Hello, all ...
We are currently trying to 'port' our web application from 32 bit processor to titanium 64 bit. We already know that linux already support the 64 bit platform, but how about the VM ? Do i need a different VM than the one i usually use ? and if the OS and VM are OK, could this 'port' affect our already-built-program ?
Thanks before, i would really appreciate any help !

I'm not sure if you need a different VM but if you go to the download page on Sun's site for java they do have vm downloads for 64 bit platforms. Hmm, seems this is the first place I would have checked.

After surfing following your suggestion, i found it quite easy (theoritically) to run Java in 64 bit environment. These are the following steps :
1. Install the OS, i hope SUSE 9 already supports itanium 64 bit
2. Install the 32 bit SDK/JRE for Solaris SPARC Platform or the 64 bit SDK/JRE for Linux or others
3. Complete the VM installation with the files for 64 bit support (for Solaris SPARC Platform)
Here is the url : SDK/JRE download page
Thanks for the info !
