"Batch" files in Unix

If you're coming from a Windows background here's how to do a simple "batch" file in Unix

Create the batch file with:
touch jv.sh

Write a line into the batch file. Use an editor for longer files obviously.
echo "java -version" > jv.sh

Make it executable
chmod +x jv.sh

To run the file:
bash jv.sh
