AppSscan Enterprise & Selenium (can you help?)

Early today I received this question:

"I've been looking for a way to integrate Appscan Enterprise with Selenium and noted some blog posts of yours that show integration with Appscan for various purposes.

I would like to know if you have any ideas on how it may be possible to glue together Selenium & Appscan.  I'm wishing there was a way to port Selenium to Manual Explore."

to which I replied:

"I have not used AppScan enterprise a lot, but doesn't it have a proxy function? If so, you could feed your selenium scripts to it first, and then let it fuzz/test it.

Have you seen the equivalent technique used by ZAP proxy?"

So here is my Question: Any good resources on how to create such 'AppScan Enterprise + Selenium' setup?

The idea is to use Selenium scripts to define how the app works and then use AppScan Enterprise (a BlackBox scanner) to apply security testing on top
