It's very old question but I hope it will help someone.

private String getStateName(IWorkItem workItem, IProgressMonitor monitor) throws TeamRepositoryException {
 if (workItem != null) {
  Identifier<IState> state = workItem.getState2();
  IWorkflowInfo workflowInfo = workItemClient.findWorkflowInfo(workItem, monitor);
  return workflowInfo.getStateName(state);      
 }
 return null;
}

I don't know how to get the first data item in a client

but here is a snippet of code I use in an Advisor.
you need the IWorkflowInfo object for this workitem.

				IAuditableCommon iac = &#40;&#40;ISaveParameter&#41; data&#41;.getSaveOperationParameter&#40;&#41;.getAuditableCommon&#40;&#41;;

WorkflowManager wfm = new WorkflowManager&#40;iac&#41;;

// reference the right object type &#40;cast&#41;
IWorkItem workItem = &#40;IWorkItem&#41; auditable;
// get the workflow this workitem is in, so we can get the labels of the states
IWorkflowInfo x =wfm.getWorkflowInfo&#40;workItem, monitor&#41;;

if&#40;Debug&#41; System.out.println&#40;&quot;the workitem state is &quot;+ workItem.getState2&#40;&#41;.getStringIdentifier&#40;&#41;+ &quot;=&quot; +x.getStateName&#40;workItem.getState2&#40;&#41;&#41; &#41;;
// if this workitem is going into resolved state &#40;we accessed 'proposed new' state above
if&#40;x.getStateName&#40;workItem.getState2&#40;&#41;&#41;.equalsIgnoreCase&#40;ResolvedState&#41;&#41;

We found a solution in this post: https://jazz.net/forums/viewtopic.php?p=74030#74030
But that method
com.ibm.team.workitem.client.WorkflowUtilities.findWorkflowInfo&#40;IWorkItem, IProgressMonitor&#41;.getStateName&#40;Identifier&lt;IState&gt;&#41;
is not very perfomant... :?
