For AD integration, you're basically be configuring LDAP authentication.
Check your documentation for anything LDAP related.

I found an old post for this configuration:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/compiere/forums/forum/108148/topic/1579778

Enabling LDAP Functionality:

1.  Log in as SysAdmin
2.  Go to Menu>System Admin>System
3.  In Field "Ldap URL" fill in your LDAP URL, i.e. "LDAP://YourLdapServer.com"
4.  In field "LDAP Domain" Your Domain, i.e., "YourLdapServer.com"
5.  Log Out as SysAdmin
6.  Log In as SuperUser/Admin
7.  GoTo Menu>General Rules>Security>User
8.  In tab "User Contact" and "Internal" you will find a field for LDAP User Name -- Here (for a particular user) fill in the LDAP use name.

Upon logging in -- the user can enter his/her LDAP user name and password and it will associate the correct credentials to the user you have set up in Compiere.
