How to access php _SERVER variable from Java
posted 5 years ago
I need to integrate a Java web app running under Tomcat 7 with a php app running under Apache Web server on the same machine. Specifically, the php app is responsible for user logins/security and I need my web app to be able to read the _SERVER variable named "REMOTE_USER" stored by php. I do not need to write to the php app or interact in any way other than reading the contents of that variable. If any one has experience doing something similar I would appreciate some tips how to accomplish this.
