This would seem to be better done by a script that invokes splitter and 
mkgmap. All that splitter and mkgmap would need to do is to follow the 
convention, that is, finish with exit status 0 when everything succeeds, 
and with a nonzero exit status in case of an error.

Then, the script (or makefile or whatever) would implement the logic.  
Maybe sample scripts could be provided for both POSIX-like systems and 
for Microsoft Windows.

I do not know about the shells that are available on Microsoft Windows 
(cmd.exe, PowerShell and whatnot), but on POSIX, something like the 
following should work, assuming that splitter and mkgmap follow the 
convention on exit codes:

set -e
# the above causes the script to abort on error
wget ...
java -jar splitter.jar ...
java -jar mkgmap.jar ...
# optional step: upload the map files to somewhere
sudo shutdown now

Best regards,
