schema matching

Towards large-scale schema and ontology matching

Rahm, E
Schema Matching and Mapping

The purely manual specification of semantic correspondences between schemas is almost infeasible for very large schemas or when many different schemas have to be matched. Hence, solving such large-scale match tasks asks for automatic or semi-automatic schema matching approaches. Large-scale matching needs especially be supported for XML schemas and different kinds of ontologies due to their increasing use and size, e.g. in e-business, web and life science appli-cations.
