Java is loaded with tools for communicating between applications. One of the simplest would be a shared database.

What are the characteristics of the data which needs to be shared?
volume?
rapid change?
transactions?
... etc

You can get the ServletContext of another application running in the same server using getContext(String appUrl):

http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/servletapi/javax/servlet/ServletContext.html#getContext%28java.lang.String%29
