Along with the continuing consolidation process of the Interaction Flow Modeling Language (IFML) within OMG, we are now starting our effort of documenting and disseminating IFML.
The three most recent resources I wish to point at are:
- Official publishing of IFML in the OMG specification catalog
- A new Wikipedia page on the language
- A new demonstration video on the ongoing implementation effort of an opensource IFML editor
OMG has now officially published IFML in its list of specifications:
and the official specs are now reachable through the official URL of the standard at:
The page summarizes the focus and content of the language, as well as the benefits that developers can gain by adopting it.
The demonstration video of the new IFML editor that we are developing is available on YouTube.
This implementation consists of an opensource IFML editor based on Eclipse, EMF/GMF and the Graphiti API. At the moment the tool is under development, but it will be released as opensource Eclipse Project as soon as it reaches a reasonable level of completeness. The tool also includes the mappings from the IFML abstract concepts to the platform- specific concepts of Java Swing, Microsoft WPF, and HTML, as described in the IFML specification.
A sneak preview of the tool and generation features is reported in the video, also shown below:
