Re: [p2-dev] Cannot install features into a runtime workbench

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:
-Xdebug
-Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=y,address=8000
- In your Eclipse create a new Remote Debug launch configuration and connect to the remote session
