Hellow. I have a system that is a catalog. I want make some functions to load data from database to form for online edit a template and after that to export to InDesign for printing. Do I need InDesign Server for that and how I can to use it for web (php,ajax,ExtJs)?
have a look at
where you can find the "Distributed Copy Editor" which basically mimics an InCopy Application in your browser or AIR application. The Editor is build with Flex and uses the Corba Interface / SOAP Interface to the InDesign Server. As long as you don't know how to interpret and render InCopy / InDesign / IDML Files in a browser via CSS or other means you will definitely need the InDesign Server.
