Hi all,

I'm not quite sure if this is the right list for my question, but to me
it seemed the most suitable.

How do you find out if a particular JVM for a particular operation
system will handle Java Threads (especially: is each Java thread mapped
to a system thread; is it assured, that all CPU cores will be used for
computation [given there are enough threads])?

looking forward to getting a helpful reply,
