Re: [p2-dev] Testing P2 without SELF_Profile

Unfortunately, depending on what you want to achieve, this may not always work (see mail from Gunnar on Friday, July 23rd)
In this case, a trick consist in exporting your application once, and starting your selfhosting instance with the following VM Args:
	-Declipse.p2.data.area=<fileURLTop2FolderOfTheExportedApplication>
	-Declipse.p2.profile=<profileId>
