Abstract

Information integration is an important process in building electronic marketplaces. Different parties in electronic commerce transactions often use different product classifications, different product catalogues, and different business documents. To enable co-operation and commerce between parties that use different representation for their domain of interest, the information structures that they use should be made compatible and interoperable.
