(continuing from email, so other folks can see the questions and answers..)
I have an open step, such as:
open, s1, project://com.cisco.foo
And via the SDK I want to extract that user-defined session name (s1), which is needed for a variety of wierd but important reasons in my tool.
While I could make "s1" the contents of a variable, then extract that variable data, I'd like to avoid extra steps for the end users.
What options are there for getting that data? In the old SDK (yes, I'm one of the odd ones who developed things with the early forms of the SDK..) I used to use:
String session = this.getExecutionContext().getStep().getSession();
So maybe it's available in the Step data model of the new SDK somewhere?
