To resolve the syntax, structure and semantic heterogeneity for sharing information resources, the representative technologies are XML and Metadata. XML is used to represent the syntax and structure of information resources but the various XML schema definitions that have been developed by independent organizations without any standards or guidelines, make it difficult to share the semantic meaning of XML encoded information resources. In this paper, we propose a mechanism, named MSDL that represents the exact meaning of XML tags by describing the structural and semantic differences with standard metadata in metadata registries. MSDL overcomes the limitations of other approaches with respect to exactness, flexibility and standardization, and provides an environment for business partners using different metadata to share their XML encoded information resources.
