Running a script in crontab which executes a jar file

Hi,

I have a script (.sh file) which has been created through my login. This script executes a jar file.
Java is installed through my login and the folder has been given full permission for access.

When this script is added by root in crontab, it does not get executed.

Could you please let me know where the problem could be?

Thanks,
Archana

Code:
1,2,.. ksh -x yourscript_with_full_path >/tmp/log 2>&1
