Re: MultiThreading in java working in MultiProcessor

Are your threads heavily IO dependant? I guess you would only experience a benefit from a multi-processor system if your threads were computationally as opposed to IO intensive. Otherwise you may end up with the two processors (threads) competing for the same resources. In a single processor system this might not be as apparent because the threading is implemented through timeslicing (i.e. allocating slots of CPU time to each thread in time) so no two threads will actually be running at any single point in time.
