Modeling Heterogeneous Information

Abstract

In our previous work [shk94], we have discussed providing integrated and rapid access to existing heterogeneous information without any restructuring, reformatting or relocation of data. Such access is achieved through the generation of metadata that encapsulates the original information. We are currently working on designing a data modeling language aimed at controlling the metadata generation process. In this paper, we discuss applying this language to modeling heterogeneous information and demonstrate the ease with which the information may be made available for search and browsing.
