    Default Does java support multi process applications?

    Hi all
    I am going to learn Java threads, but I haven't seen anything about using fork in Java. As you may know, there is a method for having more than one process of a same program in C or C++, called fork. Then, each process can have many threads to do sth. I know that Java supports multi thread applications, but how about multi process applications?
