Hello,

I am using code cited here to install features into product. Is there a way to install features into different instance of Eclipse? Right now installation happens in running Eclipse instance from IDE, and I want to install into a build product. I can do this using director application's "-destination" argument, how would I do the same using P2 API?

Thanks,
Alex

You need to create a ProvisioningAgent pointing at the p2 area of the instance to manipulate. From there, you need to make sure that you obtain all the services from this agent. I don't have any specific example at hand but I know PDE is doing something similar when dealing with target platforms.
To create an instance of IProvisioningAgent use the IProvisioningAgentProvider.
