Blackdown jdk1.2.2 rc4 use native threads, and should be able to handle
that, however, it is not as stable as the green thread version :(

The main problem is that if they are sharing the same resource space, they
will overwrite each other's stores, and it will be really painful for the
cache, as the db may become corrupted, and disk space may be lost forever
and cached files may be reaffected, you can then serve wrong cached
documents :(
So you should use two different root.
If you use two version configured in a different way, it solves your
problem, and there are no problems doing that.

-root is easy, the ports have to be changed in the configuration file. Add
org.w3c.jigsaw.port=8010 in your second Jigsaw, in the admin-server.props
and you're all set.
We should do an offline editor to create new servers within one process,
change the configuration offline and such...
