Hi Matthias,

Apparently this got lost in a recent refactoring.
In Albatross-al.215 you can access the root component instance from a  
unit test. As an example see APierTest>>testEditPage.

This version of Albatross also allows one to easily access to the  
current URL and title as you requested in another mail.
