Those process availability checks/alerts in your screenshots will only work for host monitoring agents not for application agents such as Java, .NET, etc...

In your case if you are using application level agents you can really only use the built in incidents Application Process Unavailable (unexpected) and/or Application Process Unavailable (shutdown) to see when one of the processes the agent is injected into goes offline. Apart from that you can look at some of the plugins that exist that may be able to help a bit.
