[jboss-user] [JBoss jBPM] - Is this a viable scenario?

We have an EJB 3 application running in Jboss that is designed to track inventory. Our data model is persisted with hibernate and according to the EJB3 spec and we're using stateless session beans to execute business logic from the client application.

I would like design a workflow to manage which actions can be performed upon an item of inventory at any point during it's life. For example, if it is in a repair state it can either be repaired or scrapped.

>From the client app it would be nice to ask the server...
what are the current available actions for this inventory?
1. user selects an action
2. client app collects necessary data from the user for the action
3. client invokes the action in the workflow to move the inventory to its next state

Is this a valid scenario that could be integrated with jBPM? How might i go about this? Can someone point me to some documentation that might help?

The tutorial/getting started docs are fine, but they give me no clue as to how to begin integrating a workflow with my system.

Thank you very much.
