XML has emerged as the leading language for representing and exchanging data not only on the Web, but also in general in the enterprise. XQuery is emerging as the standard query language for XML. Thus, tools are required to mediate between XML queries and heterogeneous data sources to integrate data in XML. This paper presents the e-XMLMedia mediator, a unique tool for integrating and querying disparate heterogeneous information as unified XML views. It describes the mediator architecture and focuses on the unique distributed query processing technology implemented in this component. Further, we evoke the various applications that are currently being experimented with the e-XMLMedia Mediator.
