Use Brickset database for a homemade software

edited June 2012 in The Database
I'd like to create a little software that allow me to catalogue my sets (and will have some functions I need).

In order to pre-write some textfields, I thought to use Brickset's database, because it is complete and opportunely updated.

So I'd like to know:
- Are there problems to do that? I mean, do you allow to external softwares to access the database or it is forbidden? I don't want to do nothing that defiles some rule or that don't like to the owner of the database.
- Is there a documentation that explain how to access the database?

Thanks.

    You can access the entire database using web services which are documented here

    http://www.brickset.com/webservices/

    There are other methods but this is the preferred, and supported, method.

    You might want to try rebrickable.com which integrates with Brickset and has already done the hard work.
