In DotKernel, Zend_Registry will contain the following variables:

  • startTime – the result of microtime() at the beginning of the request
  • configuration – the configuration options loaded from configs/application.ini
  • router – routing settings loaded from configs/router.xml
  • database – the database adapter
  • settings – the settings loaded from the database
  • requestModule, requestController, requestAction – the module, controller and action of the current request
  • request – additional request variables
  • seo – seo information loaded from configs/dots/seo.xml (site name, default description, keywords etc)
  • option – the options for the current dot loaded from configs/dots/<moduleName>.xml
  • session – the session object

To use the variables in the registry, you must first get an instance of the registry object:

$registry = Zend_Registry::getInstance();
//...
echo $registry-&gt;startTime;
//...
echo $registry-&gt;requestAction;

Or if you only need one variable from the registry, you can get it directly using:

$action = Zend_Registry::get('requestAction');

You can find more information about Zend_Registry, in the Zend Framework Documentation.
