It is very hard for me to give you any advice, since you are very
reluctant with the details of what you are actually trying to do.
There are at least two methods to contact a running GIMP. Gimp-Perl has
a method of communicate to the main GIMP process, and there is a net-fu
server, where GIMP listens on a socket.
I don't have very much experience with that, so I cannot really help
here. It might also make sense for you to develop a small extension for
the GIMP, that establishes the communication between your application
and the GIMP.
