I am using Spring Web Flow 2.0. Could anyone please let me know how to access flow scoped variables outside spring web flow, may be in servlet, filter or mvc controller ?

I tried to use flow execution key to get the FlowExecution from flow repository, but it always returns null, which I found found here, But, It does not seem to be working.

Please help to solve this !.

Looks like there are some thread bound context holder classes

ExternalContextHolder and RequestContextHolder

I am not sure if these will help you or not.

Alternatively if you have an evaluate action you can pass it in, and have your Controller method accept a RequestContext.
