New to BPM

Sorry if the question appears little too naive. I am a Java developer with a background in Core Java, Java EE and frameworks like Hibernate, JPA etc. Now I want to learn BPM / Workflow (to add a new skillset).
What approach can I take to start learning it? Can you suggest me a good primer? Which tool should I use (I did a bit research and downloaded jBPM 5)? Where can I get the problems that I can solve? Is there any crowd sourcing activity in which I can take part to get a feel of the real BPM project?

Thanks in advance.

Oracle offer some prebuilt envionments that run in their virtual machine player. Saves you struggling to build an Oracle BPM envionment.
They then have various tutorials and guides about their products, but seem to be based on ADF and JDeveloper..
