* Electronic catalogs are information about products and services in the electronic commerce environment, and require diverse and flexible schemas. A catalog management system supports the definition, storage, retrieval, and management of product information throughout the e-commerce process, and thus, is an essential component in almost all e-business applications. However, the diversity in product types, applications, and vocabulary (language) makes it a difficult system to design and implement. We present in this paper the modeling and design issues in an e-catalog management system and introduce a system that implements our approaches to these issues.
