I know that Spring Web MVC is the foundation of Spring Web Flow, but I'm curious that in a web application, can we implement most parts with Spring Web MVC, and implement some complex flow with Spring Web Flow?

If so, how Spring Web MVC and Spring Web flow interact?

Yes Spring Web Flow can interact with Spring MVC. Spring Web Flow is "just" for the "navigation" inside the application. Beside the configuration of the application context you configure the flows of your application. Spring MVC and Spring Web Flow is the a very good combination.
