The SOA: Service Oriented Architecture is a paradigm which allows the unification in the approaches of integration of the information systems. This data integration of shared semantic description of handled by the services. This integration of the data is more flexible considering the limited number of the concepts used by the services. Therefore, architecture is suggested in order to reduce domain ontologies development and integration complexity. It allows also finding and automatic invocation of the services. Ontologies are integrated without doing major changes in operating mode of web services like HTTP, SOAP. This chapter presents an architecture which is a step towards its automation through the semantic web services without redefining the information system completely.

Application enterprise integration can be performed on several layers level, mainly on data and treatments5 level. Based ontologies approaches (Keita, Catherine, & Robert, 2006) represent a framework on which we can validate semantic integration.

Approaches of integration are characterized after selecting layer by using three main relevant activities (Izza, Vincent, & Burlat, 2006) as follows:
