Yes. A Java process can listen on many ports.

For example, Tomcat supports this by allowing you to define multiple connectors in the server.xml file.

Hello,

A program can run different threads which will listen on different ports.
But in single thread server can listen to only one port.

FYI:

Server is nothing but a program listening at some port..you can write a server which listens at any number of ports.
