ComponentAccessor in Confluence?

I've been using the Script Runner plugin in Jira for pretty much anything under the sun. It's really a great plugin for finding out details about the running Jira instance, and I've worked up quite a collection of scripts that I use more or less frequently.

I've installed the Script Runner (3.0) on our Confluence instance, and I'm having less luck.

The API's seem to be quite different, and I am struggling to get a "way in", so to speak.

In Jira, all things start from the ComponentAccessor. Is there a similar component in Confluence?

I do most of the scripting in the scripting console.

After some heavy googling, I found the com.atlassian.spring.container.ContainerManager, which seems to be what I'm looking after. For example, trying to fetch the pageManager from the script console, use the lines:

import com.atlassian.spring.container.ContainerManager
ContainerManager.getInstance().getComponent("pageManager")

Which will return the page manager for general use and abuse :-D

The com.atlassian.sal.api.component.ComponentLocator class may actually be the nearer equivalent.
