Interweaving Systems (IWS) are systems that have not been designed to cooperate, but can influence each other at runtine through a shared environment. In this paper, we present a general approach that enables IWS to gain an explicit view of the shared environment. The approach is based on ontology alignment and model driven techniques. The core idea is to build a Directory Ontology that shows what systems can know about their environment, and local Connector Ontologies that organize information routing between systems and connect these via ontology alignments. Changes are addressed using ontology mapping adaption. This approach is presented using an application example from the area of traffic control systems. The key benefit of the approach is that it allows supporting and sustaining data integration in Interweaving Systems using explicit and domain-independent rules.
