This documentation is only intended for XNAT 1.6. For XNAT 1.7 Plugin installation documentation, see: Deploying Plugins in XNAT
The XNAT add-on architecture allows users to extend a default XNAT instance by adding features such as:
These features are added using Plug-ins or Modules. Modules are installed at build time by integrating the XNAT 1.6 base with features contained in the downloaded modules.
Helpful instructions for downloading a plug-in or module from Marketplace can be found on the Download Instructions page. Once you have your plug-in or module, you should install it
Modules are packaged as a JAR or ZIP file. To install a module, you simply place the package in the appropriate location and update your XNAT installation.
Plugins and Modules allow a user to add a diverse set of features and functionality to a default XNAT instance. Because of that, it is nearly impossible to provide generic documentation on how to use plugins or modules in general. Please consult the documentation found in the add-on's details page to learn how to use specific features provided.
