In the recent years, most enterprises have started to experience the use of the Web for work cooperation to improve efficiency and information interchange. As a consequence, enterprise information systems are being migrated onto the web, and methods and tools to effectively access data provided on the web in different formats from the autonomous heterogeneous data sources are required. In particular, integration tools are required to obtain a uniform data representation by abstracting from the formats in the origin data sources and thus to build a global information space suitable for query and access interface. The chapter will be devoted to discuss the characteristics of data schema integration in web-enabled, and to describe a comprehensive integration scheme for organizing heterogeneous information sources over the web, to enhance the capability of information interchange and interoperation among web-enabled systems.
