Data Import into OFBiz

My Second day with OFBiz. Exhausting experience. I managed to set up a sample Store, Website, Catalogue, Category and Product as per Ian Gilbert's walk thru. Being an ofbiz admin is not easy :-)

I still have a long way to go with the design, database and architecture.

A first problem is how can I upload the set of data that I have (product info, description, images, etc…) or in other words import the data into ofbiz. My data resides in MySQL with a wildly different schema.

What structure should I follow in formatting my data? How can I disable (or take care) or refirential integrity (Ofbiz side)? Most important: Why isn't it as easy as I expected? Any Suggestions would be appreciated.

Posted in Java.

    Hey,
    has your ofbiz implementation lived up to your expectations? I`m currently evaluating ofbiz as a ERP solution and trying to gather other peoples experience with this OS package. If you have any thoughts, please share them with me.

    Thanks in advance!
