Similarity Matching of XML Schema

Ayse Salman


XML Schema similarity matching problem is a key task in numerous applications, particularly to support data exchange and integration. Solving such match problem has found considerable interest among researchers and several matching approaches have been proposed. However, to achieve the best match, and because the problem is hard several approaches must be combined. This paper describes a system that can find accurate matches by combining matching on two levels. First finding the best mapping between the schema elements by comparing their internal properties, then comparing elements similarity based on their context inside the schema.
