Database community has been seriously disturbed with the Web technologies expansion. Particularly, two reports have produced a special commotion in database field. The first one, the Asilomar report (Bernstein et al., 1998), postulates the new directives in databases tendencies, previewing the Web impact in this field. The second one, Breaking out the Box (Silberschatz & Zdonik, 1996), proposes how database community must transfer its technology to be introduced into Web technology. In this sense, the database box must be broken out into its autonomous functional components, and they must be used to reach a solution for the problem of heterogeneous data sources integration.
