For the record, rJava and JRI work fine with Sun's Java 1.6 on 64-bit systems (fine being defined by the fact that JGR works :)). JGC-based JRE is still quite buggy on both 32 and 64-bit machines as far as we can tell, but for non-GUI task it seems to work. However, I don't think this is what Brian has in mind ...
