      Description

      For example, in the sellitem-jsf sample:

      • Launching the sellitem flow results in a redirect to "intro.jsf". Well, the first view-state of that flow is "enterPriceAndItemCount" so a developer would expect the URL (if it includes the view name) to be "enterPriceAndItemCount.jsf"

      A question is whether the view name should be included at all. In practice it makes no difference. Spring Web Flow uses the _flowExecutionKey to restore the view. The only thing that matters is that the request get routed to the FacesServlet with the _flowExecutionKey.
