I'm using Solidity in order to create smart contracts. From contract only has access to the current state, I can't see where I'm able to get directly the address where this contract has been mined.

The only way I see to achieve this, is to use the Web3 JavaScript API so as to get contract.address, and then call a setter function,implemented inside the smart contract with contract.address as input parameter.

Is this the only way to do it?

You can use the global variable this.

address myAddress = address (this)
