Inter and Intra Snap communication

 I currently have a java application running in a snap. As part of some
added functionality my java application will need to communicate with a C
program executable. We are weighing up the options of how this would work.
The probably obvious way is to build a new snap which contains the C
program executable. Then we need some way of inter snap communication.

So my first question is what is recommend for INTER snap communication, how
is it supposed to work?

Alternatively could one snap contain two binaries? In this way could
traditional linux inter process communication methods be used? This is my
second question.

Thanks in advance.
