This is only true if you use the default configuration for the working
directory. However, it's possible to store the directory somewhere else.
The only way to get the Avalon Context in Flow is to write a Java class
that implements Contextualizable. You can now instantiate an object of
this class from flow through "cocoon.createObject("CLASSNAME");"
Cocoon calls the contextualize methods and passes in the Context object.
Store this in an instance variable and add a getter method to the
object, for example getAvalonContext(), then you get the context like

Now, this is rather complicated, I admit, but it should always work.
