Interoperability between legacy systems is essential for various processes to be effectively operated in terms of cooperation in business. A process, however, may include various queries, and thus data interoperability based on queries might not be properly executed due to problems of heterogeneousness. This paper proposes a cooperation system for the business process based on XMDR in Grid. The proposed system solves the problem of heterogeneousness that may take place regarding interoperability of queries in a XMDRbased business process. Heterogeneousness in an operation of a business process may involve metadata collision, schema collision, or data collision. This can be handled by operating a business process by making use of XMDR-based Global Query and Local Query.
