We r creating a chat program. We came to know that a socket can support only 50 connections ( i.e only 50 clients can connect to our Chat Server at a time). Is it true ?. If it is true what is the mechanism to overcome this problem. Our Server is using Linux(containing JDK1.1.5).

I'm not sure, but there should be no of that limitations neither for JDK nor for Linux kernel.
It may be that this is just a 'feature' for linux jdk, I would suggest you take the latest Linux jdk from IBM or you can have this restrictions set in kernel level in /proc for your box.
