Which JDK6 to download?

The JDK6 download page, http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp, lists the available JDK6 downloads.

I need the version that includes web development classes, i.e. the javax packages but I can't figure out which one of the downloads is the correct one.

The most likely candidate is the download labeled:
JDK 6 Update 1 with Java EE 5 SDK Update 3 Preview 2

However above this on the page is a newer JDK labeled:
JDK 6 Update 2.

Do I only need the most likely candidate or do I need both to get the latest JDK6 or do I need something completely different?

Thanks for any advice,

Personally, I would pick "JDK 6 Update 2" to get the most current SE version, then go to the EE download page and get "Update 2" for the most current non-preview EE version.
