    Calling an InDesign ExtendScript script from a Java application

    Sturm359 Level 1

      Since ExtendScript / Javascript cannot access a database directly, I figured that I would use a Java program to do so, instead.  However, I would need some data gathered from a rather large ExtendScript script that I've already written for InDesign.

       

      Thus, is there any way to create a Java program that will launch InDesign CS6 (if it isn't already running), execute a specific script (.jsx file), then return a value (or values) back to the Java program when it's finished?  I can then have the Java program plug that returned information into a MySQL database table. (I still need to look up how to do that last part, but I'm certain it's possible.)
