Replacing JSF navigation rules with jBPM

Hi all,
I am curious to see how is it possible to integrate a JSF application's page flow (which is described by navigation rules in faces-config.xml) with jBPM. I mean it is not clear for me where jBPM should intervene in navigation rules of a web application which is built with JSF and/or Spring WebFlow.

Thanks for your help,

Well, personally, and I work for JBoss, if you want JSF and jBPM, you might as well go for using JBoss Seam and get all the extra goodies on top of that, and easily integrate JSF with jBPM.

Thanks Mark for prompt reply,
Since you work for JBoss, would you please recommend a good way to learn Seam? My frequent ways are:
1. Any solid up-to-date book? Unfortunately as I see the progress of Seam, every book will be absolute before coming on scene!
2. Any good documentation? I mean with examples and ...
3. Download the source and jump start to dig the source codes.

Your recommendation will be very helpful
