In a system landscape containing a combination of ABAP and Java components, it makes sense to integrate your user management so that you can use the same user data across different systems and can administer this data centrally. SAP NetWeaver provides both ABAP and Java-based user management solutions. The user management solution that you should use to administer your user data depends on factors such as the type of systems that are running in your landscape. This section outlines some options on how to integrate user management across a system landscape and provides recommendations for when to use which option.
For an introduction to the available user management tools, see SAP NetWeaver Security Guide ® User Administration and Authentication ® User Management.
