e4 provides an "all in one" download, called the '''e4 SDK'''. This is a product that contains everything you would ever need to develop e4: the latest Eclipse SDK, EMF SDK, and all of the e4 bundles and source code, and parts of the Equinox SDK. Simply download the zip, unzip it, and run the eclipse.exe as you would for the basic Eclipse platform.  This will launch an e4 SDK that you can use to try out the demos and experiment with an e4 application.
