how to make sure first command finishes and then only execute second command in shell script
#!/bin/sh echo "Stopping application" #command to stop application echo "Starting application" #command to start application
In above code, I wanted to make sure that command to stop application is finished properly and then only start the application.
How to handle this.
Please note in my case if application is already stopped then command to stop application takes some random time to complete i.e. 20sec, 30 sec .
So adding sleep is not proper way.
Main moto behind script is to restart application.
Considering fact that if application is allready stopped it doesnt work properly.
If application is running then the script works perfect.
