Re: [p2-dev] Using shared bundle location with -roaming option in director

Hi Pradeep,

AFAIK, the absolute paths to org.eclipse.equinox.p2.installFolder gets hard-coded in the profile file, if you provision the application using director without -roaming enabled.
So you need to invoke the director with -roaming enabled.Is there a particular reason you don't want to invoke the director with -roaming enabled?
AFAIR with -roaming enabled, org.eclipse.equinox.p2.installFolder value gets modified at runtime relative to the current working directory when the profile is loaded from disk.

Hi devs,

I want to provision a shared bundle installation. (bundle pooling). All works fine, apart from roaming. It is due to absolute paths in eclipse.ini file. Bit of Google searching revealed that, others too have encountered the same issue. [1]

Is there any workaround for the bug. manually editing the file to a relative path, didn't work either.
