In my oppinion, all threads in Java are preeptive, and if the OS offers support for preeptive threads, than the JVM may or may not implement native threads.
I say that because you don't need an OS that supports preemptive threading to do preemptive threading. Even, you don't need an OS that supports threading to do preemptive threading. I think that you can do preemptive threading by library functions in all UNIX systems.
But there are different oppinionshere
There, you can find a way to test it.
If really there is no preemtive threading on Solaris, than the SUN guys are not very smart.
