plays a central role in many applications that require interoperability among heterogeneous data sources. A good evaluation for different capabilities of schema matching systems has become vital as the complexity of such systems arises. The capabilities of matching systems incorporate different (possibly conflicting) aspects among them match quality and match efficiency. The analysis of efficiency of a schema matching system, if it is done, tends to be done in a way separate from the analysis of effectiveness. In this paper, we present the trade-off between schema matching effectiveness and efficiency as a multi-objective optimization problem. This representation enables us to obtain a combined measure as a compromise between them. We combine both performance aspects in a weighted-average function to determine the cost-effectiveness of a schema matching system. We apply our proposed approach to evaluate two currently existing mainstream schema matching systems namely
. Experimental results showed that, by carefully utilizing both small-scale and large-scale schemas, it is necessary to take the response time of the matching process into account especially in large-scale schemas.
