MT programming enables you to speed up applications and to leverage the parallelism of hardware and the efficiencies of objects. The Java on Solaris MT implementation is efficient, reliable, and standards-based, offering significant advantages to developers and end-users. The Solaris operating environment provides the best performance, tools, support, and flexibility in developing MT applications. The Solaris operating environment utilizes the following significant MT advances:
The Solaris MT kernel - the essential component in a complete implementation of an MT architecture.
The two-level threads model - the Solaris system's proven MT implementation that enables processes to use an unlimited number of threads for optimal performance
The POSIX pthreads standard - an implementation of the MT interface defined by the IEEE POSIX 1003.1c specification.
The Java threads API, one of the Java APIs, that is fast becoming a standard interface used to program MT applications
