parallel processing in java

Does the Threads created using java utilize various processors available in a multicore or multiprocessor machine efficiently ?
I have recently attended a conference on high performance computing where new parallel processing based programming languages like x10 , chapel etc are being introduced to me , is the same cannot be achieved using a already familiar language like java , it would be much useful to transform an existing java program more efficient using parallel processing by properly utilizing multiprocessor architecture .
