I have a web application in one server and I need to deploy jforum into another server, each with its own apache tomcat and mysql. My web application has a login page and related databases tables.

The scenario is, I already have the web application running on my website. I want to put in another menu item on the website called forum which points to Jforum. But I want the users who are already logged in to the my web application to be logged into the forum as well. Its like, someone logged in to the website is automatically logged into the forum.

I would like to implement sso as part of my application. So should I pass on the login credentials to jforum. or is it possible to use Jforum's SSO with my webapp.

I agree. Here's the link:
