Note sure if it works,
couldnt you try accessing all 3 dirs at once with something like: /spd/iu/web/{kon,ent,prod}/lib/

Or probably better using like:
for VARIANT in kon ent prod;do
    cp /spd/iu/web/$VARIANT/lib/* $NEWDEST

But then again, this might break up the server's file structure and PATH definitions....

I'm not really understanding this line:
$_RUNJAVA -d64 -Djava.library.path="/spd/iu/system/wls/wls1035/wlserver_10.3/server/native/solaris/x64/:/spd/iu/web/kon/lib/" \
    -cp "/spd/iu/system/util/te-con/te-con-1.2.0/lib/te-con-1.2.0_new.jar:/spd/iu/web/kon/lib/*" com.luz.telco.sandbox.tecon.ConnectionTest builtin/

But then again, it seems to me it contains all 3 diffrent locations...

Ok, I got an env variable that solves my problem with the 3 different dirs.

Now I want to have the paths for this argument in an external .conf file

$_RUNJAVA -d64 -Djava.library.path="/spd/iu/system/wls/wls1035/wlserver_10.3/server/native/solaris/x64/:/spd/iu/web/$STAGE/lib/" -cp "/spd/iu/system/util/te-con/te-con-1.2.0/lib/te-con-1.2.0_new.jar:/spd/iu/web/$STAGE/lib/*" com.luz.telco.sandbox.tecon.ConnectionTest builtin/luz-$

But when I create a file with

LIBPATH="/spd/iu/system/wls/wls1035/wlserver_10.3/server/native/solaris/x64/:/spd/iu/web/$STAGE/lib/" -cp "/spd/iu/system/util/te-con/te-con-1.2.0/lib/te-con-1.2.0_new.jar:/spd/iu/web/$STAGE/lib/*" com.luz.telco.sandbox.tecon.ConnectionTest builtin/luz-$

And enter into the original file:

$_RUNJAVA -d64 -Djava.library.path=LIBPATH

it doesn't really work

I want to test if the file exists at all, so I added:

#Test if config file exists
if [ -e $CONFIG_FILE ]; then
echo "Config file found."

When I run the script it doesn't work.
The error message is:
test: argument expected
# 10

#Test if config file exists and does not have null size 
if [ -s "$CONFIG_FILE" ]; then 
echo "Config file found."

It should be a space between the dot and the $CONFIG_FILE in the line

I still get the same error.

Here a few more details:

I run the script with ./
It then prints out:
Setting JAVA_HOME to /spd/iu/system/java/jdk1.6.0_65
CLASSPATH = /spd/iu/system/util/te-con/te-con-1.2.0/lib/te-con-1.2.0_new.jar:/spd/iu/system/util/te-con/te-con-1.2.0/lib/sapjco3-3.0.7jar
./ test: argument expected

My script currently looks like this:


# resolve links - $0 may be a softlink

while [ -h "$PRG" ]; do
	ls=`ls -ld "$PRG"`
	link=`expr "$ls" : '.*-> \(.*\)$'`
	if expr "$link" : '/.*' > /dev/null; then
		PRG=`dirname "$PRG"`/"$link"
	echo "PRG = $PRG"

# Get standard environment variables
PRGDIR=`dirname "$PRG"`

# Only set $CT_HOME if not already set
# [ -z "CT_HOME" ] && CT_HOME=`cd "$PRGDIR/.." ; pwd`
CT_HOME=`cd "$PRGDIR/.." ; pwd`

# Make sure prerequisite environment variables are set
if [ -z "$JAVA_HOME" ]; then
	# For our servers we assume our standard jdk location
	if [ -d "/spd/iu/system/java/jdk1.6.0_65" }; then
		echo "Seetting JAVA_HOME to $JAVA_HOME"
		echo "Please set JAVA_HOME variable to a JDK >= 1.6.x"
		exit 1


# Set classpath
if [ -d "${CT_LIBDIR}" ]; then
	for i in "${CT_LIBDIR}"/*.jar; do
	echo "Does not exist: ${CT_LIBDIR}"



#Test if config file exists and does not have null size 
if [ -s "$CONFIG_FILE" ]; then 
echo "Config file found."

$_RUNJAVA -d64 -Djava.library.path="/spd/iu/system/wls/wls1035/wlserver_10.3/server/native/solaris/x64/:/spd/iu/web/$STAGE/lib/" -cp "/spd/iu/system/util/te-con/te-con-1.2.0/lib/te-con-1.2.0_new.jar:/spd/iu/web/$STAGE/lib/*" com.luz.telco.sandbox.tecon.ConnectionTest builtin/luz-$

$STAGE simply contains the dir name on each server.

Maybe it's me, but are you sure about the first line of your script ?
#!/bin/ssh shouldn't it be something else like #!/bin/sh ?
# 13  
Old 02-13-2014
If changing the first line of the script doesn't fix the problem, it might be that there is a malformed if statement in /spd/iu/system/util/te-con/te-con-1.2.0/bin/tecon.conf. Please show us the contents of this file. (Note that the echo before you dot this file succeeds and the echo after you dot this file did not run.)

The ssh was a typo here, in the script it's simply sh

The tecon.conf contains only one variable as of now:
