The evolving technologies of Semantic Web and Web services are providing new means for application integration frameworks. The need for semantically enriched information exchange over the flexible environment of the internet provides a valuable enhancement to traditional methods and technologies for Enterprise Application Integration. However the utilization of the Semantic Web and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is not as straightforward as it appears and has specific limitations and inefficiencies due to the fact that is was not originally designed for that purpose. This paper presents a methodology that aims at the exploitation of these two technologies and the definition of an ontologies based enterprise application integration framework (ONAR).
