Java Simple Script to Check running Process


CHECK='ps aux | grep start.jar | grep -v grep | wc -l'

if [ $CHECK = 0 ]
	/usr/local/jre-1.7.0/bin/java - jar start.jar &

Could anybody advise whats up with this code im trying to put this in as a cron job to check that solr search engine is running every 10secs and if its not start it. The script is giving me a error when i execute it.

'if' unmatched

Any advice would be great thanks!

Nope that threw another error?

check.sh[9]: [: aux: unexpected operator/operand

The previous error was where i tried to enter exit at the end rather than fi.

I have very limited scripting experience so im trying to get my head around why this wont work?

"$CHECK = 0" is wrong . should be $CHECK -eq 0

Same error as before..
