Use System.exit() in your Java programs to return an error level to the UNIX shell.

To add to what Tom said, in Unix it is traditional to exit with a zero to indicate success. Any other value indicates some sort of error occured. In some programs the exit value tells you which error occured.

If you do System.exit(-1);, it will kill your App Server

After implementing the 'System.exit (status);' -stuff, you combine the commands like this:


to execute P2 only if P1 succeeded, and so on.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
