- Depending on which aspects of e4 interest you, check one or more of the following (note that source components only give you source):
- e4 Resources: Description of what you will get...
- e4 SWT: This will install the ActionScript development environment which is used to generate cross-compiled SWT apps.
- e4 UI: This will install the e4 UI runtime components. To be able to run the e4 photo demo (a RCP style application), you should check everything under the "E4 UI" category: Eclipse e4 CSS, Eclipse e4 UI, Eclipse e4 CSS Source, and Eclipse e4 UI Source.
- e4 XWT: Description of what you will get...
- Click Next.
- Review the items to be installed and click Next.
