@lightning you have a dot between the jar name and the classname in your command. Could this be the reason for it to be failing?

comment Saving alias permanently by a C program
why do you want to do that? Maybe if you try to explain what exactly is that you want to achieve, we'll provide you better ideas.

comment Move audio files after playing
sorry, I may have misunderstood what you really want, mpd is just a server program that allows you to queue and dequeue music files, you use client programs to do that (there are several, from cmdline to big GUIs) and control play/stop.

comment shell script to install and run
do you have control over the ftp server? If you do, maybe it would be nice to always have a symbolic link that always pointing to the latest version (myapp-latest.deb), and then make your script download that.

comment shell script to install and run
Why isn't shell-script a fine choice in this case? I know expect is good for interactive sessions, but the interactive part is quite small in this case (password can probably be passed in the url), a shell script would be fine.
