The goal of this how-to is to explain the Enterprise Manager's installation process.
Enterprise Manager is intended to be used as a back-office portal centralizing all the common administration features such as user management and also the already existing application's back-offices. By integrating every existing back-office within Enterprise Manager, you'll have one single control panel, one common way to manage users, and thus one single entry point to administrate every specific application.
It uses the platform login mechanisms, allowing developers to unify users and logins across eSpaces as if they were only one. In this particular way, the user won't have to login each time he/she changes eSpace (application). Once the user logs-in, every access to a different eSpace will be completely transparent.
