To do this:
You need to write an external procedure in either Java or C and call it from the Job.

But why dont you schedule your jobs in the unix machine?
Setup crontab to run the shell script and if any sqlprocessing has to be done do it in the shell script.

those permissions must be granted, otherwise java stored procedure will not read your script from the disk and will not run it

you should better use other scheduler than oracle jobs. use operating system specific one, eg. crontab in uniw evnironments.
