How many threads should I create Java?
One thread per processor/core will maximize processing power and minimize context switching.
How many threads in Java is too many?
4.2. Windows. On Windows machines, there’s no limit specified for threads. Thus, we can create as many threads as we want, until our system runs out of available system memory.
Can we create 1000 threads in Java?

How many threads can run at once?
Each core can only run 1 thread at a time, i.e. hyperthreading is disabled. So, you can have a total maximum of 20 threads executing in parallel, one thread per CPU/core.
How many threads can a CPU handle?

No. After starting a thread, it can never be started again. If you does so, an IllegalThreadStateException is thrown. In such case, thread will run once but for second time, it will throw exception.
How do you find thread count?
It is calculated by adding together the numbers of lengthwise (warp) and widthwise (weft) threads within a certain area. For example, a cotton sheet with 100 warp threads and 100 weft threads in each square inch of fabric would have a listed thread count of 200.
