Are you running two JVMs?

Do a search on JavaRanch; that sort of question comes up about every two weeks. Lots of possibilities:
  • You could connect the two together with Sockets.
  • You could create a class to embody data and serialise its instances from one application and deserialise them into the other application.
  • You could have a text file with data in, writing and rewriting it from the different applications.

    I have a question for you.

    Your code obviously recognizes class Ivr. Yet you still use reflection to create an instance. Why?

    First of all, why use Class.forName if Ivr is available; therefore Ivr.class is also available. That will return the same as Class.forName("Ivr").

    Second of all, why not say
    That's a) a lot better to read, and b) faster.
