VMware recently announced the v0.3 beta release of TAP and introduced the new concept of profile. Profile is basically a collection of different packages those are installed in during TAP installation.
In the TAP v0.3 beta release, there are two types of profile:
- Full (
- Developer Light (
As the name suggests, “Full” profile is basically the one having all the packages installed during TAP installation, whereas, Developer profile will have limited number of packages installed.
