This is a simple general question regarding how to integrate external workflow and link it to the existing model of an application.

Let's say we have a Item entity.
A process describres the lifecycle and actions that need to be taken @ at different steps.
Hence the different states of the process define the status of the Item.
The first step is to had a foreign key from the entity to the token / process instance to be able to look up the corresponding jbpm resources.

Then what is the best practice for resolving an item (or list of items) status, or search items by status in an efficient / flexible way ? 

   - denormalize and keep the status on the item (updated to correct value at given process state)
   - ?
