Integrating enterprise system has become an issue of sharing information rather than transforming information due to the increasing complexity and the heterogeneity of the applications. The transition from application centric to integration centric enterprise application integration (EAI) requires methods and technologies that will enable and facilitate the definition of shared information. The use of ontologies Semantic Web and technologies can improve the existing EAI methods by providing a framework capable to define shared information. Ontologies based Enterprise application integration (ONAR) framework utilizes Semantic Web technologies to define shared information among heterogeneous systems. The present paper presents the utilization of ontologies for the formation of ONAR framework and its application for service oriented application integration (SOAI)
