The tests are JUnit (http://junit.org) - Tests. Therefore you can run it from Apache ANT (http://ant.apache.org), Maven (http://maven.apache.org). Additionally you can run it from the IDE of your choice, for example from eclipse. The commandline is possible, too.

"Spring Web Flow is the module of Spring for implementing flows. The Web Flow engine plugs into the Spring Web MVC platform and provides declarative flow definition language." (from the reference documentation)

Spring Web Flow is a optimal addition to Spring MVC, but it can't replace a controller framework.

The book covers the topic security, especially the integration with spring security (chapter 7):
Additionally you can check the reference documentation: http://static.springframework.org/spring-webflow/docs/2.0.x/reference/htmlsingle/spring-webflow-reference.html#flow-security

The tests could be run outside a servlet container. The tests are "simple" JUnit-Tests. The concept behind that tests is to test the flow itself. A description is provided here: http://static.springframework.org/spring-webflow/docs/2.0.x/reference/htmlsingle/spring-webflow-reference.html#testing
Additionally we have one chapter (chapter 5) in our book which is dedicated to testing a Spring Web Flow application.

If you are interested in JSF a important part of the chapter 4 is the explanation of the integration of RichFaces (richfaces is a component library for JSF).

First of all, if you want to use Spring Web Flow 2 the Spring 2.5.6 framework is required. Because Web Flow requires a base Spring infrastructure. The integration of Spring Web Flow inside a existing web application is possible. In this case you have to migrate the existing "flow" mechansimn to Web Flow, otherwise you can not use the advantages. In the book we show how to integrate with Spring MVC because its the best way to use Web Flow. In your case it depends on used controller framework / view mechansimn.

FYI: Conversation is one key element of web flow, therefore the maintance is done from the framework. The back button problem is solved by the framework, too.

The framework Spring Web Flow 2 offers an integrated mechanismn of testing the flows.
More information could be read here: http://static.springframework.org/spring-webflow/docs/2.0.x/reference/htmlsingle/spring-webflow-reference.html#testing

We have used that integration inside our project and it helps us to increase the quality of the flows.

I agree, that validation is an important point of a web application. In chapter 3 we have a section about valdation. The topic web services is outside of scope of that book. But if moore readers are interested in we can think about it.

A first description of validation is provided here: http://static.springframework.org/spring-webflow/docs/2.0.x/reference/htmlsingle/spring-webflow-reference.html#view-validate

The integration of JSF and Spring Web Flow 2 could be done with Spring Faces. Details could be read here: http://www.packtpub.com/files/spring-web-flow-2-web-development-sample-chapter-4-spring-faces.pdf

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.
