The loose and dynamic association between peers in a peer-to-peer integration has meant that, to date, peer-to-peer systems have been based on exchange of files identified with a very limited set of attributes, and no schema is used to describe the data within those files. This paper extends an existing approach to data integration, called both-as-view, to be an efficient mechanism for defining peer-to-peer integration at the schema level, and demonstrates how the data integration can be used for the exchange of messages and queries between peers.
