XML, Ontology, Knowledge enrichment, Integration Server.


XML is becoming an efficient and powerful integration platform for integration of heterogeneous industrial data, different applications and systems. The knowledge-enriched integration server is a result of this development. One import issue of the knowledge–enriched integration server is the use of ontology. In this paper we propose a layered ontology model that covers the linguistic, the logic, the XML representation and the implementation aspects and can be used for the XML-based knowledge enriched integration server. The XML representation layer provides a unified mapping and manipulation mechanism. We also extend the Is-A and part-whole relations with the ranking order. Three new relations the sibling, the buddy and the con-text-related relation – are defined in this paper for effective and efficient information search and query. We also define some rules for matching implication.
