Title
XSMapper: a Service-oriented Utility for XML Schema Transformation
Published in
ERCIM News Magazine. Num. 64, January 2006 - 2006
Abstract
A typical case of low-level interoperability, particularly frequent in the Digital Libraries world, is the federation of collections via metadata conversion. Roughly speaking, a federation consists of a number of repositories, each with its own format, which agree on a common format for metadata exchange. Any metadata record, must then be transformed into the common format before it is sent as the result of a request. In this note, we report on a solution to the metadata conversion problem based on semantic mappings. Although it was developed to federate collections in a specific project, XSMapper is domain-independent and can be used in any context where an XML schema transformation is required.
