My question above is really aimed at the most useful way of using JBPM in a company environment.

>From the book I got a largely conceptual view of JBPM/BPMN2.0 with a range of possibilities for it's use. 
>From the online documentation I get the mechanics but very little in the way of how it's used. 
>From the installer I get a 'demo' which i've managed to replace databases with but there's very little in the way of 'this is how it should be installed and why'. Instead the details are masked by maven which I recognise the value of but also I would like to understand what's going on too. 

We are looking at implementing the UK Government auto-enrollment process for pensions which is a very complicated process (or at least providing a BPMN2.0 diagram) and while I'm sold on JBPM in theory, which I have been for a long time, but I've tended to hit a brick wall when trying to implement because everything is just a bit sketchy, or is that my thinking:-)

Long story short what I'm after is some concrete pointers in terms of getting value out of using it.

For example; 

Are people deploying it outside the demo framework, if so any pointers in how to do that.
Are people starting jbpm from JEE applications in ears or is it best as a standalone with remote calls to start, attach to, complete .. process. If so pointers on how to do that.

Thanks in advance for any help. I'm not asking for you to do the thinking/reading for me, just that if anybody has anything however brief on their experience to guide me,  I would be very grateful.
