Non-blocking ServerSocket code in Matlab

I am creating multiple ServerSockets ( http://docs.oracle.com/javase/1.5.0/docs/api/java/net/ServerSocket.html) in Matlab. These servers are waiting for a external client to communicate (one client per server). I am currently running multiple ServerSockets and communicating successfully with their external clients. However, the code pauses until each server accepts its corresponding client.

    socket1 = ServerSocket1.accept;
    % Code Waits until connection 
    socket2 = ServerSocket2.accept;
    % Code Waits until connection
    socket3 = ServerSocket3.accept;
    % Code Waits until connection

I was wondering if I can open a thread/worker/etc to have all the ServerSockets waiting for their respective client.

So far I tried batch without luck.

Why are you using multiple ServerSockets anyways? Wouldn't it make more sense to wait for all the clients with one socket, which calls "accept" again after one client has connected? Like that you could handle an arbitrary number of clients.
