No, it does not, if you run the JVM under jsvc (commons-daemon).
This is how most Linux packages nowadays set it up by default.

But of course, you cannot run 2 servers at the same time listening on 
the same port. So if you want to have Tomcat handle port 80, then you 
cannot have Apache httpd listening to that same port at the same time.
