I have apache-tomcat-5.5.26 configured with JAVA_HOME env variable pointed to
"C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_14"(pls note the jdk version).

Later i have installed weblogic 9.0 at C:\bea(which has, jdk150_03 and jrockit90_150_03 bundled). now do i have to modify the JAVA_HOME path to point to either of the jdk's inside c:\bea\ or is there no need to modify JAVA_HOME(path which was pointed to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_14) for weblogic 9.0?

as of now i didnt face any problems running my applications in weblogic(without changing the JAVA_HOME path, i.e, without point JAVA_HOME env var to point to any of the jdk's inside "C:\bea\").

BEA Weblogic ships with their own JRockit JDK and suitable Sun JDK.
When you create a Weblogic domain you will have to specify if the domain should use either of these or another JDK installed on the system.
The start-up script for the domain will make sure that the selected JDK will be used, regardless of the setting of the JAVA_HOME system environment variable.

I agree. Here's the link:
