The RTSJ, as a specification, was written with uniprocessors in mind, but without precluding implementation on multi-processors. Some parts of the spec actually need a little adjustment when considering multi-processors.
However implementations of the RTSJ have always been free to run on multi-processors. Sun's Java RTS has done so since day one, as has the reference implementation.
