What I tried in jniCmd and jni worker is to make it as simple
as possible - just call main(String[]) with all the standard arguments.

It is the protocol and the exposed API who should provide any 
aditional callback - the jni worker should do one thing, load
the VM and start a standard program.

We already have a mechanism/API for shutdown - and I don't see any
good reason to add another one for the JNI call. The fewer
'special' APIs we have for JNI, the better it is for maintainance.

What I would do is just use the existing ajp13 shutdown. If there's
anything the TomcatStarter must do on shutdown, we can add another
 hook (== coyote ActionCode ) for shutdown, but use the normal
callback mechansim from JNI ( with the ajp13 shutdown message ).

If this is too complicated - I'm +0 on a temporary solution, but
long term I think we should keep the API consistent and as simple
as possible.
