"unexpected end of file" in bash script

I have this if in a bash script:

if [ $ACTION = deploy ]; then
    ${JAVA_HOME}/bin/java ${JVM_ARGS} weblogic.WLST << EOJ
    exit ();
    echo "XXX"

I think the error is in the EOJ.

Here is Solutions:

We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.

Solution 1

EOJ needs to be fully left-justified, ie. no leading white-space, and no trailing space either. Also, you could/should (depending on your needs) write the first one as <<'EOJ' .. the quotes disable some shell expansion which can otherwise occur.

From info bash

Here Documents
This type of redirection instructs the shell to read input from the
current source until a line containing only delimiter (with no trailing
blanks) is seen. All of the lines read up to that point are then used
as the standard input for a command.

   The format of here-documents is:


   No  parameter expansion, command substitution, arithmetic expansion, or
   pathname expansion is performed on word.  If any characters in word are
   quoted,  the  delimiter is the result of quote removal on word, and the
   lines in the here-document are not expanded.  If word is unquoted,  all
   lines  of  the here-document are subjected to parameter expansion, com‐
   mand substitution, and arithmetic expansion.  In the latter  case,  the
   character  sequence  \<newline> is ignored, and \ must be used to quote
   the characters \, $, and `.

   If the redirection operator is <<-, then all leading tab characters are
   stripped  from  input  lines  and  the line containing delimiter.  This
   allows here-documents within shell scripts to be indented in a  natural

Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
