The MIROWeb Esprit project has developed a unique technology to integrate multiple data sources through an object-relational model with semistructured data types. It addresses the problem of integrating irregular Web sources and regular relational databases through a mediated architecture based on a hybrid model, supporting relational, object and semistructured features. The project data exchange format is XML, the new standard of the Web, and the pivot language is XMLQL, a query language based on XML templates from AT&T. The demonstration will show the data warehousing approach for mediation, based on Oracle 8 and a semistructured cartridge developed in the project for supporting XML and XMLQL queries.
