Hi Mike, I don't know the answer to your question, but I've had some recent experience with JBE that might be relevant.

I recently began using JBE too, but I don't run it from cron. I just set it up to run as a Linux service that runs continuously. My understanding is that in this mode it simply polls the Team Concert server to find out when it has to run a build (either a user manually requested a build, or there are new changes available for a continuous build).

Brent Ulbricht from the RTC Build development team, recently wrote a wiki page on running JBE as a Linux service, if that's helpful to you.

Would this work for you or do you really need to run from cron for some reason? If so, I'd be curious to understand the rationale to see if there's a better way to run JBE.
