Anyone using a 64-bit APP with a 32-bit Oracle Client?

Oracle note 1151394.1 says
"The 32-bit Oracle client does not contain any 64-bit components.  You must 
install a 64-bit client, which can be found on Technet under "Microsoft Windows 

Is that always true though?  For example, the SQL Developer 64-bit version from 
Oracle runs with my 32-bit client libraries though it may be doing something 
different since it uses Java.

I was trying to find a 64-bit app that had database connectivity to test some 
scenarios but I can't easily locate one.
