I used the following command to find out about crontab
$man crontab

DESCRIPTION
Crontab is the program used to install, deinstall or list the tables
used to drive the cron(8) daemon in Vixie Cron. Each user can have
their own crontab, and though these are files in /var, they are not
intended to be edited directly
.


trying using these commands to research more about cron and crontab

$man -S5 cron
$man -S8 crontab

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hlight=crontab

Here is another thread that might be a little more helpful. I tried look for the crontab settings, but only got this far.

Code:
$crontab -l
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE - edit the master and reinstall.
# (/tmp/crontab.1425 installed on Thu Jul 10 02:15:17 2003)
# (Cron version -- $Id: crontab.c,v 2.13 1994/01/17 03:20:37 vixie Exp $)

$pwd
/etc

$ ls cr*
crontab

cron.d:

cron.daily:
00-logwatch  0anacron  logrotate  makewhatis.cron  rpm  slocate.cron  tmpwatch

cron.hourly:

cron.monthly:
0anacron

cron.weekly:
0anacron  makewhatis.cron

$more crontab
SHELL=/bin/bash
PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin
MAILTO=root
HOME=/

# run-parts
01 * * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.hourly
02 4 * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.daily
22 4 * * 0 root run-parts /etc/cron.weekly
42 4 1 * * root run-parts /etc/cron.monthly

Try editing your crontab file with:
Code:
0 * * * * java MyClassName > /dev/null 2> /dev/null
Where 0 * * * * is the time interval you want it to run.
