what is the thread model used by sun jvm for java6?
does each user thread get mapped to a kernel thread?(1:1 model)
or are they multiplexed?(M:N model)

is there a documentation somewhere?

tia.

Green threads have long been ditched in favour of native threads in java.
Every thread in java is a kernel thread and is scheduled directly by the kernel.
Document ... mmm i am not really sure about this.
