I have been trying to run a standalone using a crontab. I have tried running a servlet using crontab and it run fine and i got the desired output. But when i try to do the same using a standalone it does not work. Could someone please help me out of this.

I am running the crontab using the sevlet this way.
15 13 1-31 1-12 0-6 GET

I have put the standalone in a .sh file and i am trying to call the file in crontab which is not working.

Don't know what a "standalone" is, but I can tell you that unless you've got a program called "GET" someplace, this isn't going to do anything but error out. Can you use "wget" or something similar?

It will work if your java server is running on that IP on port 80 or you're using mod_jk on apache or something similar. Otherwise try:


Which I'm assuming you have tomcat or similar web container running on port 8080.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
