[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 
Have these concepts been introduced into the R engine?
