I thought the PID of a file it kicks off with exec was the same as the

It works on Linux because the PID of the exec'ed process is the same as
the shell. Weirder anad weirder.....

I used the pkill instead of pulling the PID and using kill -9 $PID but
this won't do for the long term. I have to run a separate java process
that cannot be killed when the other one may be killed periodically.
Plus, I have a monitoring script which relies on the PID to check to see
if it is still running and if not, respawn it...
