I can't tell what information you need. Can you be more specific? In general InDesign Server consists of the layout engine that underlies InDesign. All of the document layout functionality that is avaiable in InDesign is also available in InDesign Server. The funcationality is available through any of the scripting languages, through the plug-in SDK or through SOAP. There is a small number of script API, having to do with the user interface that are not available in the server.

In addition, there are other features that have been implemented in InDesign Server that are desirable for server products. You can launch multiple instances of the server, the server has error logging facility, the server has been through uptime testing. etc.

The InDesign Server Plug-in Techniques guide in the SDK should highlight the plugin configuration differences between "desktop" InDesign and InDesign Server. There is an online training session - take a look at http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/indesign/index_training.html - specifically this one:

InDesign is the desktop application used for designing and publishing layouts for print and digital media. It's used by designers to create documents like brochures, magazines, and books.

InDesign Server, on the other hand, is a headless server version of InDesign. It's used for automating document production and integrating InDesign's layout and composition engine into automated workflows, such as web-to-print solutions or database-driven publishing systems.

In essence, InDesign is for manual design work, while InDesign Server is for automated, server-based document generation.


To develop with the InDesign SDK:

  1. Download the Adobe InDesign SDK from Adobe's developer portal.

  2. Set up your development environment with necessary tools and libraries.

  3. Study the SDK documentation to understand its APIs and capabilities.

  4. Develop plugins that extend InDesign's functionality or automate tasks.

  5. Test your plugins rigorously to ensure they integrate well with InDesign.

  6. Deploy your plugins for use within InDesign

For detailed guidance, refer to Adobe's official documentation and developer resources.
