Crontab


Hi all,
i have a problem with crontab. In practice I have a script that call a java program that call a linux system command. The script if I run it, from a shell functions well,so it is not a java problem. The problem come out when i put this script in a crontab schedulation. The result in this case is that java do not execute the system command. I think it depends on crontab...

Can anyone help me?

Thanks!!

if you think it depends on crontab, why not show us the crontab entry you're written for it?

Remember crontab uses a limited Path.
So give the full path to the commands an files.

Kind regards
