There are multiple ways you can do this and/or setup server configuration(s) to accomplish this.

In a single droplet situation you can use a proxy server like NGINX or HAProxy to answer on ports 80/443 and route the traffic to the appropriate backend server/project - In your case this would be your LAMP and Java projects - Each of these project would need to be configured to answer on a different port then 80/443 like 8080, 81, this is up to you.

Here is a great start on how to do so with NGINX:

Nginx is an incredibly powerful web server and reverse proxy. In this guide, we'll discuss how to set up server blocks on Ubuntu 14.04 in order to server multiple domains from a single server.
