In this paper, we attempt to propose a tool that eases the data migration among two databases or among a database and a data structure under textual format (XML). Our purpose is to implement the program which automatically generates the code for what
we call the converter. The program that creates the converter bases itself on the sernantic correspondences between the schemas representing the databases and the XML document. We explain the way we represent and analyse these correspondences (or
rnapping), in order to generate the conversion program.
