Hmm did some more research.

According to this:

Oracle's JDK and JavaFX release supports OS X Lion on any 64-bit
capable Intel-based Mac. Specifically, ___our implementation is 64-bit
only so it requires a 64-bit operating system___.


What if I want a 32-bit JVM, or support for older PPC-based Macs?
There are community efforts based on OpenJDK to build JDK 7 for other
configurations, easily found using your favorite search engine. We
applaud these efforts! :-)

So if I read that right Oracle´s official Java7 for OSX is 64-bit
only, but community builds of OpenJDK (which is the same source code
base) are provided in 32-bit version.

That means you probably want to try this
(there are separate builds named x64 so I guess the above is 32bit)

Keep in mind I´m shooting in the dark here as I have no Mac to test.

Good luck!
