A. Steps to Register Shell Script as a concurrent program : 

Step 1:
Place the .prog script under the bin directory for your applications top directory.

For example, call the script ONEPLACE_DEMO.prog and place it under $CUSTOM_TOP/bin
(*Note: $CUSTOM_TOP = name of you custom top)

Go to $CUSTOM_TOP/bin where you have places shell script file and run below command to give full permission to file.

chmod 777 .prog

step 2:
Make a symbolic link from your script to $FND_TOP/bin/fndcpesr in $CUSTOM_TOP/bin directory.

For example, if the script is called ONEPLACE_DEMO.prog use this:

ln -s $FND_TOP/bin/fndcpesr ONEPLACE_DEMO

This link will be having same name as your script without the .prog extension.
step 3:
Register the concurrent program, using an execution method as 'Host'. Use the name of your script without the .prog extension as the name of the executable.
For the example above:
Use ONEPLACE_DEMO as name of the executable file.
step 4:
Your script will be passed at least 4 parameters, from $1 to $4.

$1 = orauser/pwd
$2 = userid(apps)
$3 = username,
$4 = request_id

Any other parameters you define will be passed in as $5 and higher.
Make sure your script returns an exit status.

#grep – This is one of the most powerful and useful commands available to you in Linux. It stands for Global/Regular Expression Print. It looks through a file and prints any line that matches a particular pattern. Because this pattern is based on "regular expression," a concise line can yield a multitude of patterns to be matched. For not, though, you can enter a tern for searching.(grep is case sensitive)
grep pattern_file
#You can use the “-i” flag to make it ignore case.
ls / | grep -i pattern_file
#Piping, or Chaining Piping is so named because it uses the pipe, (| ; shared with the \ key on most keyboards). Essentially, it takes the output of one command and directly feeds it to another. You can create long chains of commands to get a very specific desired output this way, and it’s very convenient for commands like grep.

ls / | grep pattern_file
