[p2-dev] Overriding config.ini properties to dynamically select the Profile and bundles.info to load

Hi All,

I'm trying to implement multiple-profile support in our eclipse based system by pre-provisioning several P2 Profiles and dynamically select the relevant bundles.info and P2-Profile at startup.

I have modified the structure of our eclipse-based app as below to support multiple-profiles;

|    |--org.eclipse.equinox.simpleconfigurator/bundles.info
|    |--org.eclipse.equinox.simpleconfigurator/bundles.info

|          |--profileRegistry
|                |--ProfileA.profile        
|                |--ProfileB.profile

If I manually edit the config.ini properties before startup like below I can load the bundles and profile relevant to ProfileA installation and everything works fine;

 But when I try to automate this by overriding config.ini properties by passing system.properties like below it doesn't work and application doesn't startup;

It seems by passing -Dprofile=ProfileA , the config.ini's values are not substituted by ProfileA.
Is it not possible to substitute config.ini properties by passing system properties like above?

Any insight on this will be really helpful.
