Wayland/weston question (launching weston app from tty)

Hi, could you please help me with wayland/weston question?

*Is it possible to start wayland client graphical app inside weston session
from outside the weston somehow (tty, serial console, or boot)?*

Here the code

    display.display = wl_display_connect(NULL);

    EGLint major, minor;
    display.egl.dpy = eglGetDisplay(display.display);

    ret = eglInitialize(display.egl.dpy, &major, &minor);
    assert(ret == EGL_TRUE);

If I tried to start from weston terminal or wayland session, I'm gettings
proper result and eglInitialize() successful. But when I start it from tty
or Xorg (weston on other tty), I'm getting eglInitialize assert fault.

Pass EGL_DEFAULT_DISPLAY to eglGetDisplay make it proper initing but it not
workable with app.
Best regards,
Alexey Kasyanchuk
