You cannot piggypback on the JMeter client-server connection which uses RMI.

You can start a beanshell server as per the referenced documentation.
However that has absolutely no security, so is not advisable.

JMeter does not offer an API for obtaining information about its state.
However you can of course use OS facilities for checking the content
of log files and whether the process is still running, etc.

There is also JMX (Jconsole) but JMeter does not currently register any MBeans.
