Agree! that Workflow, PageFlow are not a Struts... or a problem.

In greenscreens(Cobol), we had (work)flow, chose menu 1-12, then 1-6, 
etc. The programers is in control of next step.
Web is event oriented. The user is in control, programer has to code 
defensive. We just receive events and handle.
Ex: User start to fill out credit info, then browses to Amazon, Google, 
then comes back.

 From business side, being process centric is bad. Info, or model, or 
data centric is better, since the business process changes and needs to 
be dynamic.
