    Best approach to implement a content driven composition with InDesign ?

      Hi,

       

      I'm search for the best approach to implement an automatic content driven composition with Indesign.

       

       

      My contents are XML based.

       

       

      For now, I work with InDesign (Desktop app) and a scripting solution to handle CMS search and import in predefined InDesign templates or files with known pages number.

       

       

      Tomorow, I need a solution to compose many pages on demand with an unknown pages number produced, a simple and repeatable InDesign template.

       

       

      InDesign server will be used to do this job.

       

       

      But how to use it ?

       

       

      by handling IDML files  ?

      by scripting ? an ImageCatalog.jsx based on an XML structure ...

      other solution ? maybe a plugin ?

       

       

      What's the best approach in term of performances, development charge and maintenability ?

       

       

      Any ideas, samples, ... will be appreciated

       

       

      Thanks
