Linking Struts Application with FLEX Application

Hi

I have multiple modules, some of them are implement in struts and other are in  flex (blaze ds) and each module is a different war file ( web application). now i need to share the session Object among all the applications.

my problems are

1. how to share a session object between two different struts applications
2. how to share struts modules' httpSession object with Flex module
3. how to share blazeds's FlexSession with Struts module.
4. if session sharing is not possible can i share a normal java object like USERInFO which should be removed if session is lost.

i tried 4th problem by serialization but if user loses the session it got some security issues..

anybody suggest any other ways to resolve this problem

Session information is scoped only to the current web application (ServletContext), so information stored in one context will not be directly visible in another.

yes we can forward the request to another servlet in same server using  RequestDispatcher.forward()

but my problem is maintaining same user session when communicating between two different  "web appliactions".
