A JDBC Data Mediation Service

  title={A JDBC Data Mediation Service},
  author={Paul L. Bergstein and Avijit Sikder},
A serious problem facing many organizations today is the need to use information from multiple data sources that have been developed separately. Conflicts in the structure and semantics of these disparate data sources create major obstacles to effective use. We have previously described our data mediation approach to this problem in which the structure and semantics of each database is defined by mapping data elements onto a common ontology expressed as a conceptual schema. Here we report our… 

Figures from this paper

Query Translation and Where Clause Processing in Data Mediation
This paper describes the solution, which involves splitting the where clause into a translatable portion to be processed in the foreign database, and an untranslatable portion in the mediator.
Data Mediation in a Grid Environment
This paper describes how the development of a data mediation service is easily extended to provide transparency and distributed query processing in a grid environment where a single query may require combining data from multiple sources.

The Internet delay emulator (IDEM) is a software tool that captures the network details and reproduces an environment useful for research oriented projects and rigorous testing shows that actual delay in data sent is accurately modeled by IDEM.
An ODBC CORBA-Based Data Mediation Service
The implementation of a CORBA-based mediation service with ODBC drivers is reported, making mediation convenient for a wider class of applications and switching to any data source registered with the mediator simply by plugging in the drivers and specifying the mediation service as the data source.


Conditional Mapping in Data Mediation
The data mediation approach relies on a common ontology that can be used to describe the structure and semantics of each of the systems that wish to participate in the information sharing, and it is found that these mappings sometimes depend on thevalue of a data element or the value of some other element of the same tuple.
Context interchange: new features and formalisms for the intelligent integration of information
It is shown that queries formulated on shared views, export schema, and shared “ontologies” can be mediated in the same way using the Context Interchange framework.
Mediators in the architecture of future information systems
It is shown that mediation simplifies, abstracts, reduces, merging, merges, and explains data.
Using semantic values to facilitate interoperability among heterogeneous information systems
A theory of semantic values as a unit of exchange that facilitates semantic interoperability betweeen heterogeneous information systems is provided and it is shown how semantic values can either be stored explicitly or be defined by environments.

The paper discusses the potential of using XML technologies as mediators for accessing and processing structured, relational data and semi-structured data over the Internet and presents a more comprehensive framework for this architecture.
GLUE: Using Heterogeneous Sources of Information in a Logic Programming System
Examples are presented which show that disjunctive facts or equivalent means are needed to treat quite natural problems adequately and to take into consideration the semantics of the external sources of information.
Local Relational Model: A Logical Formalization of Database Coordination
The main result of the paper generalizes Reiter's characterization of a relational database in terms of a first order theory by providing a syntactic characterization of the relational space in Terms of a multi-context system.
XML-based information mediation with MIX
The MIX mediator system, MIX, uses XML as the common model for data exchange and employs XML DTDs as a structural description (in effect, a “schema”) of the exchanged data to facilitate user-friendly query formulation and for optimization purposes.
XML's Impact on Databases and Data Sharing
The Extensible Markup Language, HTML's likely successor for capturing much Web content, is receiving a great deal of attention from the computing and Internet communities. Although the hype raises
Practical Context Transformation for Information System Interoperability
This paper discusses the use of contextual reasoning, i.e. context transformation for achieving semantic interoperability in heterogeneous information systems. We introduce terminological contexts
