Sharing an instance in one JVM

I have an application scope bean that controls database access. I want to use the instance of this object in a Java application I have made, which runs on the same server.
I am sure there is a way to use this instance, as it is somewhere in the Java Virtual machine on my server.
Can anyone tell me the way to do this?

The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
