You must understand that the java runtime on linux implements java 
threads by forking separate processes which if the preferred way on 
un*xes to do things. What you are seeing with top are those forked off 
processes and the memory listed is just used _once_ not once by 
thread. If you had started, say, 50 different "java" commands, the 
memory would be separate, but here, you don't have a problem.
