Thread and Process are two closely related term in multi-threading and main difference between Thread and Process in Java is that Threads are part of process. i.e. one process can spawn multiple Threads. If you run a Java program in UNIX based system e.g. Linux and if that program creates 10 Threads, it still one process and you can find that by using ps -ef | grep identifier command which is one of most popular use of grep command in UNIX, Where identifier is unix text which can be used as regular expression to find that Java process. Another major difference between Process and Thread is that, each process has its own separate memory space but Threads from same process same memory space. Some linux command map Java thread with light weight process or lwp, e.g. if you use prstat command in Solaris, you can get how many light weight process or Thread a particular Java program is using.
