Re: [p2-dev] Cannot install features into a runtime workbench
Thanks. I found that out (by accident). I'm actually surprised that it works. Pretty cool.
I have a basic idea of what a patch for https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=332158
would look like. Could someone comment on the bug and let me know if this is the right direction to go? A fix for this issue would be extremely helpful for my users. Thanks.

Thanks, DJ. Not the easiest way to set things up, but it is working for me now. I can now debug.
The next step is to figure out how to make changes to the code and run that in the remote JVM.
You can just edit the code when you hit the breakpoint and save. As long as you don't restart the VM the changes hold.
If you think about it this is no different than starting a program in debug mode.

I usually set up a remote debug session to test things like this. This is what I do:
- download a nightly build (I uses nightlies because 1) they contain the latest code which most likely matches what is in my workspace and 2) the bundle qualifiers are all the same which makes it easier if I need to export multiple bundles)
- set the following properties in the eclipse.ini file:
- In your Eclipse create a new Remote Debug launch configuration and connect to the remote session
