UIMA's Unix command line utilities are named badly

                 Key: UIMA-373
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-373
             Project: UIMA
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Core Java Framework
         Environment: Unix
            Reporter: Eddie Epstein

UIMA command line utilities are available in two flavors: commandName.bat for Windows and
commandName.sh for Unix. The Unix world typically does not use an extension for scripts.

In addition to looking dumb, my real peeve with the .sh extension is how it complicates writing
documentation, saying things like "using the cpeGui shell script (cpeGui.bat on Windows, cpeGui.sh
on Unix)". Dropping .sh would allow the documentation to just say "using commandName".
