I'm prototyping a new REST interface for jbpm for the REST-* effort.  One thing I've noticed is that there seems to be no public API to get information about a process definition or instance.
For example, I'd like to be able to know the current state of an execution, and what outgoing transitions are able to be executed.  I figured out how to get this information at runtime, but it seems to be an "internal" api (its in a *.internal.* package).
I also wanted to generate an XML document from a ProcessDefinition, but again, all metadata seems to be *very* hidden.  I had to really dive into the internals of jbpm to be able to get this information.
Maybe I'm just missing something?
