I'm a begginner at eclipse/swt and I would like to have a look at example sources. I have tried to install swt examples following instructions at help.eclipse.org/luna/topic/org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv/samples/org.eclipse.swt.examples/doc-html/swt_manual_setup.html?cp=2_4_1_1. The installation seemed to be successfull, I can see workbench view examples (Window->New view). Yet the directory "eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.swt.examples.source.../" have not appeared, and I can not create a project containing example source. I've tried both installing from the update site and from manually downloaded org.eclipse.sdk.examples.source-4.4.1.zip. Subseqent attempts to install the sources end with "software already installed".
What is wrong? What is the right way to install example sources? Or can I find the sources anywhere else, and create projects manually?
Eclipse Luna, Windows server 2003 x64.

It seems that help contents are not maintained.
>5. Deselect Use default location and click on the Browse ... button to locate the following directory:
> eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.sdk.examples.source_3.1.0/src/org.eclipse.swt.examples_3.1.0
The version suffix indicates that it must have written in the ancient ver.3.1 era. (that plugins folder structure had been changed in the age of 3.4, maybe)
You have org.eclipse.swt.examples.source_3.103.1.v20140716-1111.jar in eclipse\plugins folder. It is necessary to unzip it manually to somewhere(not to eclipse\plugins, e.g. d:\eclipse_work\swt_examples).

Yes. The source jar exists and contains the stuff I need, so it is a solution. Arigato.
