Using MDA in ontology development has been investigated in several works recently. The mappings and transformations between the UML constructs and the OWL elements to develop ontologies are the main concern of these research projects. We propose another approach in order to achieve the collaboration between MDA and ontology technologies. We propose an ontology based model transformation infrastructure to transform application models by using query statements, transformation rules and models defined as ontologies in OWL. Using this approach in model transformation infrastructure will enable us to use semantic web and ontology facilities in model driven architecture. This paper will discuss how these two technologies come together to provide automatization in model transformations.
