I am also sorta debating on what route to take on this scenario. So we have deployed jBPM as the ear file including the console and the EJBs since we need the timerservices to be ejb timers this seemed a reasonable approach.

I have been reading a lot in the documentation and also the sources and tests but still I cannot figour out how to go about and create a server based webservice to expose jBPM services like getting taskLists, proces Tasks etc etc.

Basically I can see two options right now and I would love some feedback on both of these:

Option 1 would be to just approach the CommandService EJB from my webservice, as far as i can see it that would use ONE configuration set ie jbpm conf xml, hibernate xml etc etc. This however does mean we get extra overhead in using EJB(2)...

Option 2, would be to use seperate configuration files all together, effectively meaning we bypass the whole configuration allready deployed on the JBoss server and user another one on the client. Basically as i can see this means we just share the jBPM database then ?? 

Or are there better other options that I just missed so far ?

Besides that, you could not package actionhandler classes is your own war/ear then, but only server generic or in the processarchive. These were the reasons to abandon the MBean
