Notifier API Updated for Payara Server Community Edition

Previously, Payara Server did not offer a convenient way to add extensions. If you wanted to add an extension, you had to download the Payara Server code base, build the entire repository, write your own extension and module, and basically act as a developer. We’re working to create a simplified way to add extensions to Payara Server, starting with the Notifier API.
