MultiThread - Multiple instances

I read one statement on http://www.javacoffeebreak.com/articles/threads/index.html that said Multi-threaded application means the same code and data is used but we have more than one instance of the application running.
I suspect multiple instances of the application running in case of multi-threaded application.
Please guide me.

I am slow but sure

I think that they are reffering to a process or a serious of instructions when they say application. You wouldn't have multiple instances of the complete application running, but sections of code either classes or methods that are running.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
