    Default Multithreading and its importance in java

    Multithreading is a technique that allows a program or a process to execute many tasks concurrently (at the same time and parallel). It allows a process to run its tasks in parallel mode on a single processor system

    In the multithreading concept, several multiple lightweight processes are run in a single process/task or program by a single processor. For Example, When you use a word processor you perform a many different tasks such as printing, spell checking and so on. Multithreaded software treats each process as a separate program.

    In Java, the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) allows an application to have multiple threads of execution running concurrently. It allows a program to be more responsible to the user. When a program contains multiple threads then the CPU can switch between the two threads to execute them at the same time
