Abstract The eXtensible Markup Language (XML) is a de facto standard on the Internet and is now being used to exchange a variety of data structures. This leads to the problem of efficiently storing, querying and retrieving a great amount of data contained in XML documents. Unfortunately, XML data often need to coexist with historical data. At present, the best solution for storing XML into pre-existing data structures is to extract the information from the XML documents and adapt it to the data structures’ logical model (e.g., the relational model of a DBMS). In this paper, we introduce a technique called Xere (XML entity–relationship exchange) to assist the integration of XML data with other data sources. To this aim, we present an algorithm that maps XML schemas into entity–relationship diagrams, discuss its soundness and completeness and show its implementation in XSLT.
