Does weblogic mention any preferences ? It would make sense to use the 64bit JDK. That can take advantage of the underlying architecture. I am not aware of a serious bug that would prevent you from doing this. Write to BEA (oracle ) and ask them.

Has anyone got/point us to any numbers/theory to validate their claim?
If that is their recommendation better follow it. Surely you do not want crashes in production
