Communicating Through Interapplication Messages

Bridge provides an API that defines a communication protocol between Adobe Creative Suite 2 applications. This provides the most general mechanism for communication between applications. A messaging-enabled application can launch another messaging-enabled application, and send or receive scripts to effect certain actions. For example, from within Bridge, a script can launch Photoshop, and then send a script to Photoshop that requests a photomerge operation.

While the exported functions allow specific access to certain capabilities of the application, the script in an interapplication message allows full access to the target application’s document object model (DOM), in addition to all Cross-DOM and application exported functions.
