Call receiveTask from external system

I am looking for some advice on the best way to call a receiveTask from an external system. Most of the examples I have seen so far seem to listen for events from the process engine but I am after a way to listen for events/messages from external systems and to be able to correlate these events to a receiveTask using a process variable or something similar.

I have had a look through the forum for similar topics and the only thing I could find was this: http://forums.activiti.org/en/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=368, which didn't seem to help. The REST API appears to provide the ability to retrieve a list of tasks but not the ability to search for a task or process instance using a process variable and then to send a signal to this instance.

Is anyone able to provide some advice? Thanks.
