NWA to java systems authentication


I have setup a Netweaver Administration system and able to connect to the monitored java systems by storing the login in the NWA system.

I store the login in NWA system via

Visual Admin --> Cluster --> Services --> Destinations --> HTTP

and entering these info

name :<SID>/<host>

URL : http://<host>:<port>/WSConnector/Config1?style=document

and authentication is set to basic.

What I like to do however, is <u>not</u> to use Basic authentication but rather to use SAP logon ticket. Both my NWA system and monitored java system is setup to create and receive logon tickets. However, i kept getting JMX connection unauthorized error. I can't seem to be able to set it to use SAP Logon ticket.

Further reading, I realize that most of the NWA setup documents state to use the basic authentication.

So my question is :

1. Can NWA access the monitored sap java systems via SAP Logon Ticket.

2. Can a webservice setup to only accept Basic Authentication even though the J2EE engine is setup for SAP logon tickets too?
