Can I schedule threads on Multiple CPU. Is it OS Dependant or will atleast my JVM take care of it. (I am using a SUN JVM).
If this is possible, please lemme know how.. or atleast where i can start searching..
Thanks a zillion!!!

Ordinary Java threads will use multiple CPUs in most JVM implementations, provided the JVM uses native threads instead of "green" threads.
