I have some questions on how to obtain the StatefulKnowledgeSession or processInstance that is running concurrently with another program. 

>From the documentation, it states that it's possible to make external calls using 
* processInstance.signalEvent(type, eventData);
* ksession.signalEvent(type, eventData);

When I run my first .java file, I stored the current ksession.getId() and processInstanceId into a xml file and have a signal node at the converging gateway to wait for external signaling before continuing with the workflow.

After that, I ran another bpmn workflow that reads the xml file for both the ksession ID and processInstance ID. 
However, I do not know how to use those 2 information to signal the signal node from the first bpmn workflow to continue with the workflow. 

(I was able to print out the String reperesentation of the 2 IDs but whenever I create a new ksession and do   ksession.getWorkItemManager().registerWorkItemHandler("Signaling", new Signaling(ksession.getProcessInstance(Id)));
I kept getting nullPointerException )
-Signaling is a service node that does either ProcessInstance.signalEvent("Signal", null);  or session.signalEvent("Signal", null); (Tried both ways but didn't work) 

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! 

Best Regards,
