Automatic integration of heterogenous XML-schemas

Nayak, Richi & Xia, Fu Bo (2004) Automatic integration of heterogenous XML-schemas. In The Sixth International Conference on Information Integration and Web Based Applications & Services, September 27-29, Jakarta, Indonesia.


Due to the XML’s flexibility and semi-structured nature, complications arise when trying to transplant data from one XML to another. Researchers have made great strides in solving the problem of integrating homogenous XML. But there are very few specifically addressing the problem of integrating heterogenous documents. We introduce XSD Matcher, a system for automatically mapping a collection of heterogeneous XML Schema’s. The key features of XSD Matcher are heterogenous domain, schema matching, element level granularity, use of linguistic and structure matching and exploiting type constraints. Experiments demonstrate that XSD Matcher is capable of identifying common elements between highly heterogenous XML schemas.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
