Java 6 and 7 support for multicore architectures

I am doing a research on virtual CPU utilization and relationship between JVM, VCPU and actual platform.

I am missing reliable information on how Java 6 and Java 7 support multiple cores.

Could anyone here point me to an official documentation or a research paper that explains how JVM support multicore architecture, if it does at all.

(I am familiar with Parallel GC but I have also seen reference that except for Solars it is not really implemented)

Thanks,
Edmon
