This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

What matters is the JVM. So just run tomcat on a 64 bit JVM – nos Jul 22 '11 at 2:36

This makes no sense.

Just install the 64bit version of JRE/JDK and every Java software you download and run will just utilize the 64bit features whenever applicable.

In contrary to C# and like, Java is designed to be platform independent. Whatever Java code you write, it'll run on both 32bit and 64bit machines. It's a matter of the right JVM.

Tomcat has a native code accelleration module for better performance. It is not required, though. – Thorbjørn Ravn Andersen Jul 22 '11 at 2:42
Of course, there's something of a rift between "Designed to be" and "actually is"... – Shadur Jul 22 '11 at 7:09
