A question on process name


Hi,

I list the process with
Code:
ps -ef | grep java
and I got:
Code:
user1 24041 ....
Here the user1 should the process name. My question: Is this name the same as the user name?

Says who?

Code:
ps -ef
according to the man-page gives us the
user owning the process, the PID, the PPID ... the process name is part of the 8th column, followed by any arguments ...


Cheers,
Tink
