Process start and stop, the easy way

Here is a pair of scripts that can be used to start and stop a Java process (or something else) on a Linux/UNIX box using bash:


nohup /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-sun/bin/java -jar Pronto-0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar 1> stdout.txt 2> stderr.txt &
echo $! >


kill `cat`

Use with caution, these are not production-ready ;-)
