Data Driven Pages as a Service

I was just wondering if it is possible to create a data driven page map book that can be converted to a Service and access through the Flex viewer. I would like to create a nicely designed series of maps and then provide access to them through a Viewer. They would need to be dynamic as more data is added. Is this possible? Are there any examples of this from someone?

Thanks

Mapping Center Answer:

While Data Driven Pages can't be directly called as a service, you can create a geoprocessing service using arcpy.mapping that can make map books using server. That could be called via a Flex app front end.
