All my product information  are already set up in an application.

I would like to send the product information from my application to openLCA to avoid to re-enter all the data.

And how can I read OpenLCA to send the result into my application?

How can I do that? Is there a documentation?

I'm sure the GreenDelta guys will weigh in here, but I think the olca-ipc may be the solution here. The biggest hurdle I think is taking the time to figure out the mapping of the data in your application to the data in openLCA.

The are other posts within the forum that provide some examples using it.

Another route for inputting the data would be to interface with the database directly using Java (the openLCA databases use Derby), but I think that would be much harder and much more prone to error than olca-ipc.
