Welcome to JavaRanch!
Executing other files is a library function which is independant of threading. You can execute files in a multi-threaded context, but the behavior is no different than executing them in a single-threaded context. Check out the exec() methods in the java.lang.Runtime docs.

Have you checked out Aspose?
