Java "Java is a programming language that allows developers to write once and deploy everywhere - from high-end gaming desktops to smartphones. Its OS-agnostic and widespread nature is one of its strongest selling points, but one area where it can fall flat is performance. Generally, Java applications are not going to perform as well as native applications written for a specific OS. However, thanks to Project Sumatra that performance gap may soon become less of an issue."

It's not like it's one JVM for the whole OS. And there is no local IPC mechanism in Java. If the JVM is connected to a DB, then you it's already within your sandbox.

At most what you could do is steal the encrypted trusted keystore at most(quite useless without a targeted attack).
