Navigation between different views can be done through the action attribute of the
tag that will actuate the display of the next view. In this attribute you put the name of
the page to which you want to go after the current page. The following code shows
the contents of the inscriptionFlow1 view. This view corresponds to the input
form for personal information; it contains a field for entering the name, a button to go
to the next view ( inscriptionFlow2 ), and a button to return to the previous view
( inscriptionFlow ).
<!-- inscriptionFlow1 view -->
<h1>Identification information</h1>
<p>Name : <h:inputText id="name"
<p><h:commandButton value="Next"
action="inscriptionFlow2" /></p>
<p><h:commandButton value="Back"
action="inscriptionFlow" /></p>

the ID of the exit point defined in the configuration file ( inscriptionFlowExit ).
And to save data between different views, you must use a Flow-Scoped Managed
Bean. The following code shows the skeleton of the inscriptionFlowBean man-
