Dev-mode service locator and cassandra (cas_native and kafka_native) registration

i try to understand how the service locator in dev mode works in lagom. i understand so far how it works for services and i still don’t understand show it works for infrastructures services (cassandra aka cas_native and kafka aka kafka_native). i am not able to see the missing link and i need to understand that.
i see something here (, stating that the registration for infrastructure-services is a hack.

Thanks for the explanation

Lagom’s DevMode reuses the publicly available feature to register unmanaged services in the dev mode service registry. Then, because the Lagom plugin knows if and where Cassandra and Kafka are bound, those two are added to the list of unmanaged services.

Thanks a lot :).
