Apparently we broke backward compat and this is bad… We used to return the root Component Manager when calling Utils.getComponentManager()
But it’s been modified and deprecated in XWiki 6.1M1 (
XWIKI-10352) to return the Context Component Manager.
Now, the new way of registering components has been to use the Component Manager script service introduced in XWiki 4.1M2 (see http://extensions.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Extension/Component+Module#HAccessfromScripts).
However I’ve just noticed that it’s also been modified to return the Context CM instead of the Root CM.
This means there’s now no way to dynamically register a new component from Groovy without using a deprecated API…
So right now the only workaround is to use the deprecated method:
