A Framework for XML Schema Integration via Conceptual Model

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNISA,volume 6724)

Abstract

Modern information systems may exploit numerous XML schemas for communication which causes problems with integration and evolution. Manual integration and management of evolution of the XML formats may be very hard. In this paper, we experiment with our novel method exploiting a conceptual diagram and we present our results. We introduce a framework which helps a domain expert to map the XML formats to the conceptual diagram. It can be configured to use various similarities of the formats and diagram and it can adjust them on the basis of the input from the expert. The result is a precise mapping. The diagram then integrates the XML formats and facilitates their evolution.
