Currently, the servlet stores the hivemind registry in the content, but provides no easy way of obtaining access to it. Both the prefix and the _registry members are private, so one must hack in order to access it ( by hack I also mean just copying the registry prefix to another visible static member).
This is also a J2EE compatibility issue.
If one wishes to integrate Tapestry with other features, the hivemind registry is essential.
Currently I stumble on a SessionListener, which needs to do some cleanu, and depends on ASOs and Hivemind (custom) services to do so.
wouldn't it be possible to "publish" the registry using JNDI ?
