The proposed procedure for searching the resources with application relevant capabilities is based on the ontological context coherence and semantical similarity of resource/application specifications. This approach is based on natural language definition of each concept and on calculation of concepts correlation based on associations between vectors of verbal terms used for the concepts definitions. Thus the core of the man - machine procedure for the ontological integration is formed. A scenario for the integration of ontological specifications had been developed. The use of the workbench for ontological module integration is based on this scenario and has been demonstrated on an example. The architecture of the workbench prototype is designed around the idea of distributed objects interoperation technically based on CORBA.
