How to use netstat command

My question is what does it mean to LISTEN or ACCEPT on a port as it relates to my example?

Example: I have a tomcat server, and It will use port 8080. I want to make sure that port is available for me to use.

What commands should I perform on my unix server and why?

what information would a command like this give me: netstat -an | grep LISTEN
