We present HePToX, a full-fledged peer-to-peer database system that efficiently handles XML data heterogeneity. In a highly dynamic P2P network, it is unrealistic for a peer entering the network to be forced to agree on a global mediated schema, or to perform heavyweight operations for mapping its schema to neighboring schemas. In our demo, we show that to(More)
We study a collection of heterogeneous XML databases maintaining similar and related information, exchanging data via a peer to peer overlay network. In this setting, a mediated global schema is unrealistic. Yet, users/applications wish to query the databases via one peer using its schema. We have recently developed Hep-ToX, a P2P Heterogeneous XML database(More)
Peers in a peer-to-peer data management system often have heterogeneous schemas and no mediated global schema. To translate queries across peers, we assume each peer provides correspondences between its schema and a small number of other peer schemas. We focus on query refor-mulation in the presence of heterogeneous XML schemas, including data–metadata(More)
Both search engine click-through log and social annotation have been utilized as user feedback for search result re-ranking. However, to our best knowledge, no previous study has explored the correlation between these two factors for the task of search result ranking. In this paper, we show that the gap between search queries and social tags of the same Web(More)
