Go easy on me ;-)  I just went through a lot of pain because of a deadline and our internal collective inexperience with JBoss.  Seriously though - it may be that we didn't use jBPM as elegantly as we could have and I posted several questions here and in the jBPM forum.  I also got stuck in a situation where some code I inherited, a jBPM ActionHandler, used Seam's ComponentgetInstance(...) to look up a SFSB and/or SLSB and invoke a method.  In this case, we were regularly having issues with Seam trying to close managed resources - NO TRANSACTION exceptions.  I couldn't find any decent documentation, examples, or discussions around such a use case.  So it's not surprising if, as a user of Seam + jBPM, I don't have a glowing review.
