      I'm wondering what is the best way to integrate jBPM with our user interface and establish signalling of processes. I've seen your task form examples and the post in the developers forum (http://www.jboss.org/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=155048), but

      1) I'm a bit lost as to whether there is a way to deploy those task forms together with our application in Tomcat
      and
      2) it seems like some things are still undecided (form reference in jPDL/Task still seems to be discussed etc.) and undocumented (I'm currently developing using the jBPM4 trunk and I didn't really find any task form documentation in the freshly built user guide)

      My idea at the moment is to just display a task list in our user interface and use the process variables to generate links that work in our GUI framework. Then, by passing the task ids as parameters to our pages, we'll be able to detect that a user is accessing the page as part of a work flow and add specific buttons to provide signaling etc. I'm just wondering if this is a feasible way to do this or if I'm missing something and I'll windup re-inventing the wheel.
