Hi,
In my work, I must make two ATL transformations
1/ from an ontology to another ontology meta-model.
2/ from an ontology to another UML meta-model.
So, it is possible to use OWL as a meta-model language and use it in an ATL transformation or I must transform the ontologies into UML or KM3 language?

I used IODT for that back in 2010. See https://github.com/dwagelaar/PlatformKit/tree/master/platformkit-java/build-ontology for more information: it is a project that converts UML models of various Java APIs into OWL ontologies. The ATL transformations used can both read and write OWL files, albeit with some limitations (not all OWL can be read/written, and the output is slightly off the official syntax, and must be fixed manually afterwards).

That said, IODT no longer seems to be available for download, and it's spin-off project, EODM, has also been shuttered.

As a fallback, you could use ATL's XML injector/extractor to read and write raw OWL XML.

If you can work with OWL Manchester format (can be read by Protégé, and converted to XML), take a look at OntoMOPP, which provides EMF support for a set of textual ontology languages.


Cheers,
Dennis
