Please don't shoot the messenger.

Background Info
We are moving to a j2ee space from a .net space. We hope to make this transition as painless as possible to the customers.

I have received a request to evaluate the feasibility of implementing a j2ee appserver that has servlets & JSP communicating to an ISS Server using classic ASP and

The user should be able to move from page to page as if they are still on one server. I know Session Management may be an issue.
I need to understand
1) the extent of the Session Management problem
2) the system will be reliable
3) Whether it will be feasible if we don't use session management

This is an interim solution while we migrate from the .net environment to the j2ee environment. This gradual implementation is the preferred option.

Can anyone shed light on the above issues.

It's certainly possible.
For example, I have run IIS as the web server dispatching appropriate requests to Resin J2EE application server.
