How well does JBoss scale with multi core in mind?

Fairly well. The team that I work on constantly pushes JBoss AS to its limits on multi-core and multi-processor hardware (we do a lot of benchmark testing).

I guess the short answer here is that it scales as well as the underlying JVM allows it to. Peter probably has more insight since he's spent more time with performance testing JBoss.

BTW, here is an interesting article about multicore scalability - http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20081207-analysis-more-than-16-cores-may-well-be-pointless.html
