    Move Stand alone Java App into a ColdFusion app

      I have a stand alone Java application packaged as an EAR file. I would like to take that application and integrate it (as is preferrably) into a ColdFusion based site. The CF based site has secured content, the application also has secured aspects to it so we would like to share the authentication credential of the CF site with the application itself.

      Can this be done? What changes might need to happen to the application? Is this as simple as changing url context for the application to match the CF url context, repackaging it and deploying it to the same application server?

          If you have only the compiled classes and no access to the source code
          it will be hard to impossible to integrate them.

            I'm sorry I wasn't clear.  These are internal applications and we have the source code for everything involved.  I am assuming it is a simple repackaging but how?  Is there any documentation on doing it?
