DDP connection with single db: How to get access to mongoDB data

I have connected two applications via DDP. I expected to get the DB data also on the second service application, but I don’t get them.

What am I doing wrong?

  1. Starting main web application: meteor (which should load mongodb on port 3001)
  2. Starting service application: MONGO_URL=mongodb://localhost:3001/mydb meteor --port 3100

Web (main)

var serviceConn = DDP.connect("http://localhost:3100");
console.log(Examples.find().count()); // Returns 21

Service 1

Examples = new Mongo.Collection('examples');
console.log(Examples.find().count()); // Returns 0 !

So why can’t I get the collection data on the service application as it gives me 0 results?
