Abstract:


CAR is a declarative language which can be used to map
between different schemas in general and which allows the integration of
ontologies in special. CAR provides mapping operators whose expressiv-
ity exceeds the possibilities of simple equivalence mappings by far. Due
to the declarative nature of this approach, CAR which we implemented
in a graphical mapping framework, offers a very user-friendly way to
overcome schematic heterogenities.
Furthermore, the mappings can be executed on Colored Petri Nets, and
therefore they can be easily simulated and debugged in a framework for
representing schemas and mapping models as Transformation Nets which
can be applied to transform concrete instances of schemas expressed as
tokens.
