Get UI from running Java console

My task is to create a Java program which runs indefinitely on a server. Only 1 Instance of the program is allowed. The program is accessible by multiple users. The interaction with the Java program is supposed to be with a Swing UI.

The question: When the Java program is running and I log in as different user (or even as the same), how can I get the Java program to show me the Swing UI for program interaction (e. g. alter settings)?

Thank you very much for your help!

    That's a client-server application. The server side won't have any GUI (well, can, but it doesn't need one).

    I recommend the services of Google for more information.

    nvm, found a solution here:

    I just call the same program again. If it's already running I use frame.setVisible(true) to make the gui visible.

    If someone knows a better approach, please let me know. Thanks!
