A section on delegations would be useful. The delegation APIs are simple and can be covered quickly. More interesting would be to point to some examples.
delegations chapter added. pointers to examples were already present at the end of the tutorial.
I like the tutorial outline. It might be a good idea to break out the outline bullets into 2 different guides. One for operations, basically configuration/deployment/optimization and one for Java app developers. Also, I have been working on Seam Labs that are basically a set of helloworld projects that show 1 or 2 Seam features in action with code/configuration. Something like this might be a good thing for standalone jBPM.
I know Burr is doing something similar for ESB, and we plan on converging to a single lab, he calls them "workshops" format/scheme.
