I'm slowly starting to document the existing Step implementations -- see
the package Javadocs for org.apache.commons.workflow.core for the style
that I'm using.

For existing demos of various techniques, I would look at the following:

* A really simple command line demo that uses just the Core and IO
  libraries, in package "org.apache.commons.workflow.demo".  You can
  run this from the top-level build.xml via the "demo" target.

* The "compile.wizard" and "deploy.wizard" target builds a small web
  application that uses Workflow to manage a multi-page "wizard" type
  user interaction, with "Next Page" and "Previous Page" buttons.
  Although this example does not use it, you can also integrate this kind
  of thing into Struts-based applications very easily.

* The unit tests (in the "src/test" directory hierarchy) illustrate some
  low-level ways to assemble Activities without using the XML based
  representation (which is optional but quite useful, so it will be the
  most common way to set things up).
