Found the answer to my own question... finally.
I can use use "alert('string')" to send it to the STDOUT.
Hope this helps someone else,
Thanks for the response. I discovered a way to get the output I wanted... just using alert() function. It writes to the STDOUT for indesign server so I just capture that in a file and voila.
Extendscript isn't the best 'ide' in the world, but IMHO being able to view variables, set breakpoints, step through the code, etc is worth a few rough edges'.
1. Startup InDesign Server for use with SOAP by specifying a port:
>indesignserver -port 12345
2. Use the command line application, TestClient, that ships with InDesignServer to send a script to IDS via SOAP:
>testclient -host localhost:12345 c:\myScript.jsx
* for TestClient command line options, simply execute testclient with no options:
* for more information, download the IDS SDK from: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/indesign/ and read <SDK>/docs/guides/Intro to InDesign CS3 Server - it contains a section named "Interfacing with InDesign Server through SOAP"
