Which JDK6 to download?

The JDK6 download page,
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
