The Series25 LYNX Interface uses a database integration to connect to any student information system which is hosted locally on an institution's servers.
The integration has two parts:
A series of custom tables which track historical changes to SIS data
The LYNX-APP, a lightweight Java application which exchanges data between those tables and the hosted Series25 database
The Colleague UniData integration also involves making configurations in your Colleague database as well as an application to synchronize this database with the one where the LYNX history tables are deployed.
