indesign integration

i'm not really sure where to actually put this post so it ended up in here.. happy.gif Emoticon

has anyone come accross an way to integrate eZ with indesign? i know it has been mentioned here a few times and their is a partner link around.. but i've tried emailing but no response as of yet..

currently we would like to build a solution for a client where his site would be the only point of entering data. here we would allow the client to add articles, adverts and everything related to an actual print magazine whom at a later point could select which elements or objects will be exported to an indesign format ready to print.

has any one worked of researched a similar solution?? is it pretty complicated to integrate or export to indesign?

Hi there,

InDesign supports the XML-based file format inx. You could make ezp output inx.

Seems like INX is the next generation of plain XML which is the import format in InDesign2, which we use (we're not exactly in the print publishing ourselves, hence we don't keep up with new versions). Looks promising. One or the other, it seems like a middle-way format for data import, which can be generated by virtually any technology, including eZ Publish, like Felix suggested. We've just automated the InDesign publishing process for one of our clients' that way, but in case of XML it required some trial-and-error before we came up with satisfactory exchange structure.
