Exactly. It's already used within our own Cocoon-based projects.
Currently the interface from Cocoon to JState is via an Action.

Well, if your apps grow a bit bigger this tends to get messy.
It would be great, if we could integrate this into a Java-based
Flowmap (best maintainable). Integration into Flow Object Model
also does the job, but would probably look a bit awkward - have
to see this first.
