Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) consists of tiny devices, called sensors [1] are used to observe physical environmental conditions, such as temperature, light, pressure, sound, speed and so on. Wireless Sensor Network plays a significant role in many applications like monitoring of Environment and Habitat Conditions, Medical applications, Military Surveillance, Traffic Control, Civilian applications, etc. The number of information sources has rapidly increased the need for intelligent mediation tools to be implemented between the users and resources [20]. The main problem of information source integration in their heterogeneity at the level of their format. It is not possible to change these existing sources in order to make them homogeneous (for example XML or relational). To build architecture on the top of these sources can solve the problem and allows querying an information system which is centralized and homogeneous. In this Paper we designed architecture for heterogeneous wireless sensor network, which accepts multi queries in XML format, known as XQuery. The user uses XQuery instead of SQL. This paper proposes architecture to remove heterogeneity in term of database from wireless sensor network.
