[R] R and threading

I am considering using R to integrate with a Java application. However, before deciding upon R I need to understand if R is capable of dealing with multiple requests simulataneously.

Is a single instance of R capable of dealing with multiple simulataneous requests or does a new instance of R have to be started for each request?

I have read Luke Tierney's 2001 notes on threading at http://www.stat.uiowa.edu/~luke/R/thrgui/thrgui.pdf. Have these concepts been introduced into the R engine?
