Unfortunately there are still some issues regarding e4. I think you can find out about those issues at their wiki or documentation somewhere. But they are definitely working on those issues at the moment.

You'll probably face a critical issue: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=296599 . This makes almost
impossible to test e4 applications with PDE.
However, there is no problem if you use Tycho. You can set the
application argument of Tycho-surefire-plugin to your e4 application,
and make sure the e4 bundles and your application are in the
classpath/dependencies. Then your test plugin will work well.
