Question VEXpro - Communicating with external software

I hope this isn't a really stupid question, but I'm really having a hard time trying to figure this out:

How would a program on the VEXpro communicate with software running on your PC other than TerkIDE?

The reason that I'm asking is that I would like to add vision to my robot and learn image processing. I found a really easy to use vision software called RoboRealm and an article in the March/April issue of ROBOT Magazine about streaming video to your PC from a webcam with the VEXpro.

I just don't have any idea of how to pass the information from RoboRealm back to the VEXpro. I'm assumming that the TerkIDE would have to be open, but I'm not sure. The article mentioned something about the software for the project being able to do that, but I haven't figured out how to run it yet. It's a Java app.

Any help would really be appreciated
