Adobe has released InDesign CS4 Server, designed to help create automated workflows for companies that use InDesign.

Adobe InDesign CS4 Server is aimed at advertising, catalog, editorial and brochure publishing outfits that need to automate their InDesign-based workflows. It features support for SOAP, Java, AppleScript, JavaScript, Microsoft Visual Basic and C# and C++ plug-ins

InDesign CS4 Server now supports InDesign Markup Language (IDML), introduced with InDesign CS4. IDML helps developers create and manipulate InDesign pages using XML tools. InDesign CS4 Server also supports Adobe's Flex 3 and AIR technologies, to support access away from the InDesign application itself.
