In this paper, we demonstrate an approach for the discovery and validation of n:m schema match in the hierarchical structures like the XML schemata. Basic idea is to propose an n:m node match between children (leaf nodes) of two matching non-leaf nodes of the two schemata. The similarity computation of the two non-leaf nodes is based upon the syntactic and linguistic similarity of the node labels supported by the similarity among the ancestral paths from nodes to the root. The n:m matching

The technique intuitively supports the collective intelligence of the domain users, indirectly collaborating for the validation of the complex match propositions.
