AbstractSemantic integration is crucial for successful collaboration between heterogeneous information systems in an open environment. Traditional ontologydriven approaches rely on the availability of explicit ontologies. However, in many domains, this prerequisite cannot be met. In order to address this issue, this paper investigates the theoretical foundation of ontologies and extends the traditional ontology concept to an ontological view concept. To explicitly and formally specify the ontological views, a Framebased Ontological view Specification Language (FOSL) is proposed. This language is based on the Frameknowledge representation paradigm and uses XML as the encoding. A prototype environment that supportssemantic integration, based on ontological views specified with FOSL is introduced.
