Abstract

In this paper, we illustrate the design, development and test of a tool, called Chameleon, for the automatic translation of information between heterogeneous Web data. Translations operate over XML representations of schemes and data and rely on a uniform description of models that we call metamodel. The metamodel shows structural diversities and dictates the needed transformations. Complex translations of schemes and instances are derived automatically by combining a number of predefined basic procedures, which are implemented by means of XML query languages. Practical examples of use of the tool and some experimental results are provided to show the effectiveness of the approach.
