AD user creation and authentication will work anyhow on 2012 AD if its working on 2003 DC without issue.
Because some features get deprecated with 2012, but it won't stop you from creating and authenticating users in 20102 AD as long as you have proper \ appropriate rights.

But whether application can be installed on 2012 server is totally different topic and its depends upon application support to new OS (2012 is X64 bit only), and probably application vendor can tell you about supported operating system and possible upgrade \ installation scenarios.

If you have concerns related to active directory functionality, you can deploy 2003 app server in test setup with 2012 DC and test there thoroughly.
