More and more approaches for representing information on the web are present, such as HTML, web database application, and XML documents. Information on the web is often very important for individuals and enterprises. However, the integration of various types of information is still a problem, since some information is structured and full of semantic, whereas others are semi-structured or document-centric. In this paper, a mechanism for heterogeneous information integration using the notion of EER conceptual data model is investigated so that the semantic and structure (i.e., data model) of not only database systems but also other web information resources can be discovered and integrated into a universal structure.
