How does the UDP provides multicasting capability? If a process wants to send a message to a group of destination process, what should be its destination port number. I have gone through kurose & rose and Forouzan but they mention nothing about how udp support multicasting.

Also, as UDP is an end-end protocol which does multplexing and demultiplex between processes at end systems, it does not makes sense to have multicasting capability at transport layer.

Someone please explain mulicasting capability.
