This has been a major wish list item for a while on the JVM; but see this in the corresponding JRuby project:

"JRuby doesn't implement fork() on any platform, including those where fork() is available in MRI. This is due to the fact that most JVMs cannot be safely forked."

For such purposes, Jython should be considered to be much like Python on Windows - no fork available. Subprocess is often, but not always, the same - think of daemonization, inherited file handles, etc.
