Installing the LYNX-APP

The LYNX-APP is a component of the Series25 LYNX Interface used in all locally deployed LYNX installations. It is a lightweight Java service application installed locally on your student information system server.

This application acts as a bridge between your local SIS database and 25Live, keeping data in sync by posting and receiving updates every 60 seconds. For more information about this data flow, see How LYNX Processes Data.

Before Installing

Ensure that you have already successfully deployed the necessary scripts and tables for a database integration.
