There are various possibilities to pass information between different 
web applications.

1) Have one application call the other.

Your browser always talks to webapp A, but sometimes webapp A needs 
something from B, so A could itself call B via HTTP and use the results 
to render the final answer page.

2) Let the browser transport the info

a) Cookies

You can set a cookie inside A with info needed by B. You need to craft 
the URLs, under which A and B are reached by the browser and the domaoin 
and path od the cookie such that the cookie set by A is actually also 
being sent to B.

b) URL encoding

Include a link in some answer page to A which points to B and contains 
the info needed by B e.g. via a query string or in some other form 
understood by B. The user needs to click the link.

Or: send a redirect from A to B with the info included in the URL.

Or: "A" sends a form and the info is contained as fields in the form 
body, maybe as hidden fields. The user still needs to click (submit 
form) and the form link points to B.
