For Oracle UCM and Content Server, it is recommended that you use the JpsUserProvider to communication user information and credentials managed with Oracle WebLogic Server. The JpsUserProvider is the default provider for Content Server. For details, see "When to Add a JPS User Provider".
If a site is upgrading from an earlier release of Content Server and is using Active Directory, LDAP, or Active Directory with LDAP, information about those providers is available in the 10gR3 document Managing Security and User Access. It is strongly recommended that sites upgrade to use JpsUserProvider.
