Just a few quick random ideas: there is Oracle Streams Advanced Queuing [1] but I doubt there is an easy back channel to your Java app and it's not sure whether your MF can use it.

You could create a table for batch history which contains entries for batch start and end. If there is an entry where end is NULL a batch is running. You could poll that table.

Alternatively, you could start your batches synchronously from your Java application and then you will know when it finishes.

Kind regards
