nice diagram
maybe some of the diagrams (bruno-art) in the woody-docs at the 
wiki could be of help too (presuming you need to work on some 
tutorial or presentation of any kind)

you're quite close on the woody part already
one small change I would make is change the Form-Manager box to 
just read 'Form'

when your flow-case starts it typically uses the form-manager and 
the binding-manager to instantiate a 'form' and a 'binding' from 
their respective configuration files

once started the data flows from your bean to the form (the 
form-manager is no longer in the loop)

there is also a subtle nuance in the fact that the binding is 
happening under control of the flow (it is not a property of the 
form in fact) but I would explain that in words (and only if 
needed) rather then try to express that in the drawing
