Before p2, one could write a custom install handler with a feature that was executed to do any 'custom' task during installation.

What is the equivalent in p2 get the functionality of custom install handlers?

I see a limited set of instructions here -
but they are not enough for what we want to do.

How do we execute custom java code during installation?

We need to edit the eclipse.ini file and set the -Xmx property to a value based on whether we are running inside a 64 bit or 32 bit env.

I tried creating a p2.inf file in my feature with the following line
instructions.configure = addJVMArg(jvmArg:-Xmx900m);

but the eclipse.ini still has the old -Xmx argument.
