A Tool for Semi-Automated Semantic Schema Mapping: Design and Implementation
Recently, schema mapping has found considerable interest in both research and practice. Determining matching components of database or XML schemas is needed in many applications, e.g. for e-business and data integration. In this paper a complete generic solution of the schema mapping problem is presented. A hybrid semantic schema mapping algorithm which semiautomatically finds mappings between two data representation schemas is introduced. The algorithm finds mappings based on the hierarchical organization of the elements of a term dictionary (WordNet) and on the reuse of already identified matchings. There is also a graphical user interface that allows the user to parameterize the algorithm in an easy and fast way. Special attention was paid to the collaboration of the algorithm with a matching management tool. This collaboration, as proved by the evaluation of the algorithm, resulted in the creation of a generic system for detecting and managing mappings between schemas of various ty...
