Hi All,

I have two apps, app1 is running using multiple jars inside a war and uses spring security(digest) for authentication. app1 runs in tomcat, and i have another app running in another web container (glassfish) app2. app2 uses form based authentication. Both the apps use same username and password, i need to authenticate app1 from app2 and have the authentication results in a securitycontext. I have searched, but couln't find much info. Have some across similar scenario?? Any information will be highly appreciable.

Thanks in advance.
