The java aspect looks like a red herring as not relevant to the problem.
You want to run a *nix shell script and presumably don't want to write your own bat file doing the same job.
I'm probably missing something but given that there's cygwin, and it's a *nux script, what about just editing the script for your computer, amending the paths in the script, with a find and replace, so /ABC/XYZ is replaced with /cygdrive/c/ABC/XYZ and running the script in cygwin.
