Customizing Backend

The Magnet Max server allows the developer to extend some services and modules to customize existing server behavior (e.g., User Authentication and ApprovalModule).

To build the Max server extension module, the following build environment is suggested:

  1. Download and install Oracle Java JDK v1.7.x from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/java-archive-downloads-javase7-521261.html

  2. Download and install Apache Maven v3.3 from https://maven.apache.org/install.html

  3. After the extension module is successfully built (as a jar file), it can be deployed into the Max server by placing it into the following directory: max-server/server/sharedlibs
