A 3.* based RCP application will be restarted if IApplication.start returns IApplication.EXIT_RESTART. The class E4Application seems to always return EXIT_OK.

org.eclipse.ui.IWorkbench also has a restart method, org.eclipse.e4.ui.workbench.IWorkbench does not.

So how can I restart an e4 RCP application?

You could create a Wrapper around E4Application and use that instead. That could look something like this:

public class MyE4Application implements IApplication {
	private E4Application e4app;

	@Override
	public Object start(IApplicationContext context) throws Exception {
		E4Application e4app = new E4Application();
		Object ret = e4app.start(context);
		... change the return code ...	
		return ret;
	}

	@Override
	public void stop() {
		e4app.stop();
	}
}
