Using an SSO mechanism, the answer is yes.  For example, if you had an 
application  hosted on the same tomcat host (or cluster) which used the same 
JAAS realm to authenticate the user and tomcat's SSO valve is turned on, then 
the user principal would be recognized by J2.

Alternatively, you can programmatically authenticate the user coming from 
another application in a "pass-through" kind of set up.  Not sure how to do 
this but I know it has been done, so if you want to go this route, search
this mail archive.
