Hi,

instanciating several JmolViewer instances leads in overwritin of each
other. Am I right that Jmol is not thread safe?

No. We do all sorts of things with multiple viewers. There are no static objects, only static constants.

 
What I am going to do:
  I will use one instance of the JmolViewer for displaying structures
whereby another instance shall render images in a background thread.
The code forinstantiation is
viewer = JmolViewer.allocateViewer((panel or null), new
SmarterJmolAdapter(),
                     null, null, null, null, null);

Is it possible to get it work in a single virtual machine or have I to
run a second JVM to get this work?


just allocate another viewer, and you should be fine. What exact problems are you seeing?
