I tried to do some searching on a query from a friend of mine. If suppose I run multiple instances of a java program (same or different) will there be single or multiple instances of JVM running, assuming all these setup being on the same macine.

I feel that there will be multiple instances of JVM as we specify JVM congigs seperately during program launch.

This may ease the GC process too...
