matching pattern in 'ps' command

Hi all,

I have two instance of jboss (jboss and jboss2). In a shell script that I am writing, I need to grep for each instance of jboss.

If i use ps -ef|grep 'jboss', it will also return the process for my second instance of jboss, which is jboss2. Can someone tell me how can i specify the exact string? in this case only 'jboss' and exclude 'jboss2'.

Thanks in advance.
