System.out question

I have a process where I use System.out which puts data to stdout (my screen).
Now I have another process that calls the original process and the System.out commands are not printing to my screen. I guess the System.out in the called process need to be redirected to stdout or something.
Any suggestions, this must be a fairly common situation.

Could you please specify how this other process calls the first process.
Is it using exec()... or pipes or whatever...

Another process? Another method? Another class? Another application? Another JVM (as in Remote Method Invocation)? Another program (as in Quicken or Word)?
