I have a java executable (.jar) file for which i want to create a linux script for starting,restarting,checking the status and stopping it.  

Currently, the jar file is started with something like
"nohup java -jar mydaemon.jar </dev/null> log/daemonlog.log 2>&1 &".

I want to be able to start with something like
start mydaemon
stop mydaemon
status mydaemon
restart mydaemon


The daemon runs on Centos.

depends upon which version of centos you are using, if its 5. something then the existing scripts are in /etc/init.d

copy one and adjust the contents to include your commandline

you can then do "service mydeamon start|stop|etc"
