In a peer to peer database sharing network users query data from all peers using one query as if they are querying data from one database. Implementing such a facility requires solutions to the problems of schema conflicts and query translation. Query translation is the problem of rewriting a query posed in terms of one schema to the query in terms of the other schema. Schema conflicts refer to the problems which come as the results of integrating data from databases which were designed independently. This paper proposes the architecture for integrating and querying databases in the peer to peer (P2P)network.
