file, within the <flow-definition> elements as follows:

<flow-definition id="exampleFlow">

some previous articles and within the spec itself, the flow definition
can also reside within a file that is named
/WEB-INF/<flowName>-flow.xml OR /<flowName>/<flowName>-flow.xml, where
<flowName> is the name of the flow. When using this technique, does
the flow definition XML file still follow the following format under
the final release of the specification?
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' ?>
<!DOCTYPE html>
            <j:flow-return id="returnFromB">


If so, I am unable to get my examples working when specifying a flow
definition within an XML file named after the flow, such as
exampleFlow2-flow.xml. Also, the latest builds of Netbeans 7.3 for EE
