An XML-Based Middleware for Information Integration of Enterprise Heterogeneous Systems

Abstract:

Article Preview

Nowadays, most data in enterprise systems is still stored in relational databases, which brings the majority of difficulties to achieve information interoperation between enterprise-level heterogeneous systems. In this context, we propose a middleware to integrate information from heterogeneous enterprise system based on XML standard. The proposed integration architecture aims at providing a coherent and meaningful view of the integrated heterogeneous information systems by leverage the back-end relational data sources. The architecture of the middleware relies on the well-known mediator/wrapper architecture and satisfies the semantic integration features by several main functions including data descriptions, schema transformations and integrations based on the XML-Schema standard.
