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.
