You can do either option depending on your requirements.
 

One option is to make your app SAML enabled and connect it to Okta.

The other option is to emped Okta directly in your app.

Hi Praveen/Raja,

Have you implemented OKTA integration with your Java application? I am trying to integrate my Java Web Application with Okta using openid connect. Appreciate any help on going with the right direction of implementation. There are different ways that I have seen in the forums, Spring, Apachi Shino and Rest API calls. Please suggest the best way. We want to go with custom login page.
