This article proposes a collaborative workflow system based on ontology, which is focused on typical database access. By introducing ontology base and realizing the ontology definition of flow service, domain knowledge and user interface, the system is able to incorporate collaborative knowledge dynamically and thus is flexible enough to apply in other domains which have same application patterns. The extension and upgrade of the system can be achieved by updating and adding the definition of ontology, which is one of the distinct features of the system. With the ontology base, it is possible to enable the cooperation among different systems, the interaction among different workflow systems, as well as the interaction between workflow system and other applications
