    Model Driven Engineering (MDE) aims to facilitate building larger and more complex, reliable software systems by introducing a higher abstraction level than the code level. The technical space concept discusses how the basic MDE principles may be mapped onto modern platform support and several technical spaces are proposed to support MDE. In this paper, we propose to use the ontology technical space in model transformations to achieve the targets of MDE. Using the ontology technical space will enable us to model not only the meta concepts but also the semantic context which can be used in model inferencing. Within this context, we define meta models of object oriented models ontologicaly.
