I'm convering a Windows sceript in to bash, due to my limitations in bash scripting I need some help in converting the following. the below is checking if Tomcat Web server is running and if not wayting till it is, I could do netstat and grep port 8080 but cant get the rest of the loop.

this is the windows script

  :: Test to see if WebServer is running before starting PA.
  netstat -na | find "" > WebServerStat.out

  set WebServerStat=
  for /f %%e in (WebServerStat.out) do set WebServerStat=%%e
  del /q/f WebServerStat.out
