Apache really doesn't care where the content comes from. If you are
using apache to serve as the front end and using it's authentication,
then the auth occurs before any content is served. Node has it's own
built in web server however, and that is what is usually used when you
are using it. Java is usually served by something like tomcat or
websphere. It is possible to use apache as a reverse proxy for those
other web servers, and put apache auth on top.

I know Apache can handle authentication for static pages & CGI, but what
about other things like PHP, Node, Java, etc?

Its easy to add authentication that uses the IBM i user ids and
with the apache server. I personally don't like basic authentication
in your case it would remove redundancy of ids and passwords.
