I have a theory which defines

How can I access these objects from the isabelle_process?

I know that I can load the theory file using use_thy "TestML",
but I could not figure out how to access these names.

Almost everything in Isabelle lives within a formal theory context, including the ML environment. It is merely a historical accident of the Isabelle/Pure bootstrap process that the ML content of Pure.thy is also dumped onto the naked ML toplevel of isabelle_process or isabelle console.

So the canonical approach is to evaluate Isabelle/ML snippets inside a proper theory context like Main above. The remaining question is how to achieve that for your application. E.g. one could produce a temporary
.thy file on the spot and load that with use_thy.
