Need help from Tomcat and Ubuntu user group..

I have the following script to start / stop / restart my tomcat server on ubuntu OS. Start is working fine but when i try to stop i am getting syntax syntax error below..

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0

case $1 in
sh /usr/local/tomcat/bin/
sh /usr/local/tomcat/bin/
sh /usr/local/tomcat/bin/
sh /usr/local/tomcat/bin/
exit 0

Here is the error..
Using CATALINA_BASE: /usr/local/tomcat
Using CATALINA_HOME: /usr/local/tomcat
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /usr/local/tomcat/temp
Using JRE_HOME: /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0

Best I can figure out is that maybe your script has been damaged.

Try this shutdown command instead and see what happens:

sh /usr/local/tomcat/bin/ stop
