Do you have access to httpd.conf?  If so, you can have app.domainB.com's
DocumentRoot set to the same as app.domainA.com.  e.g.:
ServerName app.domainb.com
ServerAdmin admin at domainb.com
DocumentRoot /home/domaina/public_html/app
User domaina
Group domaina

That is, for app.domainb.com which resolves to, set
DocumentRoot to domaina/public_html/app (i.e. domainA.com/app), and run
with the credentials of user domaina.  This is assuming you already have
things set up for app.domaina.com and have DNS already configured for
app.domainb.com to resolve correctly. You might also want to set the
ErrorLog directive too!  Don't forget to restart or reload Apache when
you make the change.

Maybe someone else will have a more elegant solution, but this ought to
do what you're after...if you have access to httpd.conf.

If *not*, we'll probably need some more info.  My question in this case
is whether domainA and domainB are running under different user/groups?
 If domainB has read/execute permissions on domainA's /app directory, a
mod_rewrite solution could work.
