I hope i will get the answer of my question here, I have a web application in java. And the other application i have is in PHP. PHP application does the job of Authentication from a authentication server based on username and password. Now I want the same PHP authentication methods from my java application when any user enter in java application.
For this I need to call the PHP functions from Java application, Kindly tell me the possible ways to acheive the solution

I think i missed something, Actually my requirement was little different. I have two applications, one in Java with tomcat session managment and other one in PHP using prado framework for session managment. Now to implement single sign on. I need to pass session information somehow to PHP application if someone enters in Java application and moves to PHP application from there.
I hope i am able to explain the requirement this time.
