A participant is mapped to a group in my integration. Now I'm looking
for a way to select a principal where the workitem belongs after
finish a activity. Of corse only if there is a next activity and
this activity isn't automatic.

Ok, I see,
the wfmc process doesn't know about the next participants.
Or at least there is no API for get this info out of the box.

Is it a good idea to implement a method into the application where 
is able to lookup the next activity principals (where are participants 
for the next workitem). Then we are able to render a widget with a list
of principals where you can select from. Of corse only in this 
applications where have a next activity.

So we can use the given principal and assign the workitem to this
