I'm looking for a program/utility to monitor a process running in Windows 7 (actually it's a Java process ran from .jnlp). and that can send an e-mail alert or trigger any kind of script so I can be aware that it has crashed ?

From what i've seen there's nothing like that.

Any ideas ?

:begin
tasklist | find "java.exe"
IF %ERRORLEVEL% EQU 1  blat.exe ---
sleep 10
goto :begin

you'll need blat.exe whick most used tool for sending mails via batch scripts sleep should be built-in windows 7. But this will work only if you have only one java.exe running... You can use some external tools to start a process and its PID for maximum usability
