since saravanan posted his question to this list, i must think that he 
is reading the answers... but let's put him / her in CC: to make sure 
that the answer gets through.

the easiest way to do automation inside of scribus is to use the 
scripter, which uses python. this means that you have access to all 
python's library to manage your xml and create your scribus documents.

there are some commands missing in the scribus "API"m but you seem to be 
ready to put your hands in the engine to extend it... and this should 
not be that hard, either!

finally, you can also create plugins by using c++. as cédric wrote, 
scribus is already using much XML internally, so you should not have a 
hard time figuring out how to create your own importers and exporters.

just ask if you need more hints and help!
