Subject Re: Too many process?

Are you using native threads? if so then this is ok (from memory each java 
thread gets mapped to a seperate process). If you use green threads then they 
should share a single process (from memory). 
For example sun's jdk starts 33 processes on my system (depending on your 
configuration you may have more or less)
