Java application server in DMZ

We need to have java web application server in DMZ rather than inside the enterprise network. The initial design was to have web dispatcher in DMZ and have all the application servers inside the enterprise network. But this did not fly with our security team since the authentication is happening inside the enterprise network rather than in DMZ.

Now to accomplish this we have to put application servers in DMZ in this case it is a different domain. is it possible to have central instance and application servers in a different domain? If yes how to install and configure this?

Other option i can think of is, we have only java application, is it ok to just install the java web application server in DMZ and configure the java application to connect to the central instance? I understand netweaver requires a database for java WAS. But is there any standalone version of java WAS without a need of database? Because we cannot host database in DMZ!

Any help is highly appreciated.
