Hello
Green Threads are an Implementation of the JVM
Where the JVM Implements Threads.
this is usually Used when the OS Does not Support
Threads or the Development of Native Thread was not Complete.
So ...
In Short , the JVM Imulates Threading.

Not in all JVMs. There are jdk implementation for AIX SP/SMP
systems, that do support native threads completely.(At least
they claim it is so).
I found there is a sensible time difference when used threads on
AIX some against non-thread program (math calculations, to be exact.)
