Concurrent JUnit tests

I have a JUnit test case, which I need to run concurrently multiple times and verify some post-conditions once all concurrent test cases are completed. Note that each test case instance must make a setUp() and tearDown() calls. In other words I do not want to spawn threads in the test method itself.

1. Does JUnit 3.x have this functionality built in?
2. Are there third-party libraries besides JUnitPerf and Groboutils which can do this?

1) No, it is not built in,
2) What limitations in JUnitPerf and GroboUtils are you trying to avoid?
