    Default crontab error

    hi im using crontab on ubuntu to run a jar file crontab runs a bash file with

    java -jar "/home/user/NetBeans/project/dist/projectjar"

    this works fine when run by clicking on bash file
    it works fine when run once off in crontab for test
    it FAILS when schedualed to run at specific time

    it does start to run the bash cos the crontab log file records a printout at start of java code but webdrivers never launch. but this is only when schedualed for specific time the code works otherwise anyone have any idea why this would be thanks
