Abstract: 
Current schema matching approaches still have to improve for very large and complex schemas. Such schemas are increasingly written in the standard language W3C XML schema, especially in E-business applications. The high expressive power and versatility of this schema language, in particular its type system and support for distributed schemas and namespaces, introduce new issues. In this paper, we study some of the important problems in matching such large XML schemas. We propose a fragment-oriented match approach to decompose a large match problem into several smaller ones and to reuse previous match results at the level of schema fragments.
