linux script to kill java process

I want linux script to kill java program running on console.

Following is the process running as jar.

[rapp@s1-dlap0 ~]$ ps -ef |grep java
rapp 9473 1 0 15:03 pts/1 00:00:15 java -jar wskInterface-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT-jar-with-dependencies.jar
rapp 10177 8995 0 16:00 pts/1 00:00:00 grep java
[rapp@s1-dlap0 ~]$

Answer Source

You can simply use pkill -f like this:

pkill -f 'java -jar'

EDIT: To kill a particular java process running your specific jar use this regex based pkill command:

pkill -f 'java.*lnwskInterface'
