The standard Interaction Flow Modeling Language (IFML) is designed for expressing the content, user interaction and control behaviour of the front-end of software applications.
The Interaction Flow Modeling Language has been adopted as a standard by OMG in March 2013. The standard Interaction Flow Modeling Language is designed for expressing the content, user interaction and control behaviour of the front-end of applications belonging to the following domains:
Traditional, HTML+HTTP based Web applications.
Rich Internet Applications, as supported by the forthcoming HTML 5 standard.
Embedded Human Machine Interfaces for control applications.
Multichannel and context-aware applications.
It's worth noting that IFML does not cover the modeling of the presentation issues (e.g., layout, stlye and look&feel) of an application front-end and does not cater for the specification of bi-dimensional and tri-dimensional computer based graphics, videogames, and other highly interactive applications.
According to the IFML definitions, an IFML diagram consists of one or more top-level view containers, representing UI windows or Web pages. A view container can contain view components, which denote the publication of content or interface elements for data entry (e.g., input forms). A view component can have input and output parameters. A view container and a view component can be associated with events, to denote that they support the user's interaction.
