If the other application is hosted in a webserver, then it's a webapp right? It can be accessed through an URL?

How about having that button make a form submission, and the action target would be your second web app.

each of these webapp has the same (user authentication same password and username) so is it possible that if i authenticate one application then automatically other is started and authenticated (something like sessions)
