The Example Launcher is used to launch SWT examples, which can either be Workbench views or standalone applications.
For information on how to run the standalone examples without the SWT Example Launcher, refer to SWT standalone examples setup.
The SWT Workbench view examples can also be launched directly without using the SWT Example Launcher. SWT Workbench view examples can be found under the SWT Examples category of the Show Views dialog.
From Eclipse's Window menu, select Show View > Other. In the Show View dialog, expand SWT Examples and select the SWT Example Launcher view. A view containing a list of examples will appear in your current perspective. When you select an example from the list a brief description of the example is displayed. Click on the Run button to launch the example.
