From the code submitted you launch a Java application, what is there to end it cleanly since it is writing to 2 log files?

When it stops it will stop updating the database and when it runs again
How do you achieve both?

Its my peak 00 to 6am why i dont want this to run coz some other things will be running in my server. So i want to stop this script to keep running on my peak time.
When i start the script it will keep on updating status to db, when i stopped it , it will stop processing updating status to db. But killing the process wont work as i tested these will give stuck data or failures.

Exactly what was expected, so in other words we cannot help you more with the information given, as we do not know how to stop the application gracefully, and as we don't know the OS we have no idea if it provides init script templates
If this application were part of a vendor's solution it sure has given you information on how to create a start/stop script if it was not delivered with, this is basic since what happens in case of server failure? or reboot, How will it start automatically without?

There are procedures to restart after a crash or issue, how come you have nothing?
How do you stop your application?

We have procedure to stop we used to kill the process. For start we have to go bin path and have to start using ./

Stuck or failure data will be around 100. I can clear it later.

How come they havent given you a
What else java is running on your server?
because if nothing else you can search for the PID of java stuff and kill it no?
Else you have to write code in to get the PID of the process in order to use it to kill the process with the stop option of your start/stop script
