Hi All,
In my server there are many processes are running in backgroung. I just want to bring those process into foreground. But those process are running in other shells. So the problem how can i bring the backgroung processes running from another shell to my current shell. Please share if any idea. Thanks

You'll need to restart the processes.

Had you initially started them in a terminal multiplexer you could have detached it from the other login session and restored it to the one you want. The most popular of these to use are GNU Screen and tmux

I've written a fairly popular/basic introduction for each

Which is exactly why I advised you to use a terminal multiplexer so that you can simple attach/detach from the sessions - thus not having to restart anything after that point. You should really look into the suggestions and how-to posted in my original response, as both do exactly what you need.
