Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR SHARING DATA BETWEEN HIERARCHICAL DATABASES
Abstract:
The present invention is a computer-implemented system (100) and method that allow data form a first hierarchical data structure to be applied to a second hierarchical data structure. The system that provides the functions of the Tree Transformation Engine (101) is used for excursively comparing the source elements of the first hierarchical structure to the target elements of the second hierarchical structure, and applying the data from a source element or source child element to a matching target element or target child element. The Similarity Scoring Service (104) allows for the configuration and registration of similarity scoring measures that can compare two objects and return a score based on their similarity. The method is iterated, until all elements of the second hierarchical data structure have been traversed.
