I have got a few eclipse views/plug-ins doing a variety of things.

I also have got some java program that i run entirely separetely (like in a different JVM).

Is there a mechanism allowing external java programs to access Eclipse plugin instances and fields?

Let's say I have got an eclipse view with a textfield, the users uses it and enters a string that is saved as an attribute of the plugin.

Is there a way for an external program running at the same time to retrieve this string value?

Of course, in my case, what I want to share is more complicated than that. I want to share an instance allowing communication with some hardware.

... but the general question is the same: How can external program communicate and share java instances with Eclipse plugins?

Thanks in advance
