Is it possible to use the p2 director to install into an RCP app that was exported and installed without p2 (just unzipped from an archive)?

I'm attempting to do this, and the director appears to complete successfully. It creates a p2 directory and modifies the config.ini file, etc. The only problem is that the new bundles are placed into the OSGi cache, not the plugins directory.

The config.ini osgi.bundles entry actually references the cache directly, like this:

osgi.bundles=reference\:file\:../configuration/org.eclipse.o sgi/bundles/69/data/-1275408139/plugins/com.myapp.mybundle_1.0.0.1004201500-8150.jar@4

And the update actually works, until the cache is cleared anyway... Has anybody encountered this behavior before?
